    "Flute Sonata Number Four" (excerpt)


    Flute Lovers,

    Here is the first movement of my "Flute Sonata Number Four".

    Both instruments are from the GPO sample library. Sequencer - Sonar 6, Sample Player - Kontakt 2, Brain - Senile Old Person.

    Sincerefully,

    Larry

    Larry,

    There is some very witty interplay between the flute and the piano - love the little repeated note figure. I wonder, though, about the flute player - when we he/she breathe? One of the problems I have when writing and using GPO is that I forget the wind players have to breathe, the harp player is not a machine, etc. Of course, one could argue that GPO is an instrument, and that all is required is to get it to play. I guess I'm wondering about live performance...
    But then, I'm a guitar player, so what do I know about the flute, anyway?

    I'll go now.

    "Playable" of not, the piece is a lot of fun.

    Still can't believe you do all this with a mouse...

    Thanks for giving it a listen and for commenting.

    A skilled flute player or clarinettist or...whatever, finds breathing space at the end of music passages and phrases. A skilled flute player or clarinettist or...whatever, finds breathing space at the end of music passages and phrases. Did I forget to say that a skilled flute player or...?

    Nice job on this, Larry; and I look forward to the
    subsequent movements!

    Although there are places where the flute player
    definitely gets a bit of a workout; I'd certainly say
    this is quite playable. The usual approach is just
    to take it easy on the player in the next movement
    so he can get his wind back...
