My Cross (Flute and Piano)
My Cross (Flute and Piano) by Carter Pann, Published by Theodore Presser Company.
Carter Pann calls this work “an exploration in bel canto writing for an instrument I have been in love with since my first forays as a composer.” The result is a lusciously haunting and dreamy arioso that flirts with the familiar, yet reveals surprises at every turn. Equally beautiful with piano or with chamber orchestra, MY CROSS is a 9-minute work whose technical challenges lie primarily in breath control and in maintaining a sustained, beautiful tone throughout its long lines.
Commissioned by Peter Spear and Christina Jennings as a gift to Laurie Hathorn.
