    Nocturne for Flute Harp and Viola

    First composition completed in 2006 for me!

    I decided to try something different - a lighter more transparent texture than I usually work with, and some unusual instrumentation -
    Nocturne for Alto Flute, Harp and Viola.

    Now, back to writing organ music - this was a challenge to wrap my brain around, and now my head hurts....

    Cheers,

    An interesting, reflective piece, Jonathan -- and an interesting choice of instruments, as well.

    Perhaps you should step away from the pipe organ a bit more often!

    Please, sir "STEP AWAY FROM THE ORGAN"!

    I've found that trying a piece in a different genre/form/instrumentation often is a very helpful exercise to stimulate creativity...

    It might seem odd, but even though my favorite instrument is the pipe organ (which can be quite a ponderous sound) I have a deep and lasting love for chamber music (!) I collect (among other things) string quartets, and enjoy seeing what different folks have come up with, just having 4 instruments to play with.

    Thanks for the nice comments!

    Hi Jonathan

    This is a delightful piece. It was captivating from start to finish. It almost sounds oriental in some places ....

    Very nice piece. Where many would have used harp, flute and violin your choice of instruments in a lower register not only works nicely but is refreshing.

    Thanks!

    I used to work with a viola player, and he always lamented the paucity of works for his instrument (which can really sound nice if you have a good player!)

    Really nice piece - I can see how the 'oriental' flavour is perceived - it is light and airy - I think that the viola contrasts nicely with the flute and garp - excellent piece.

    Flute and garp, eh?

    <chuckle>

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Er, I think that was just a typo... probably meant glute and farp.
