  • Illusions – Flute Choir

    Illusions make us think we are seeing something we’re not, a deception, which is quite magical; and this piece is based on magic.

    The first movement, Wild Card, depicts the journey to find one’s own way in life. The individual parts go this way and that, sometimes at peace with decisions made and sometimes filled with the unease that comes with fear of the unknown.

    A wizard can be someone clever and skilled, as a computer wizard, and can also be synonymous for obsessions, including bewitchment and enchantment. Wizardz, the second movement, gives every instrument its own voice within the ensemble, sometimes clever and skilled, sometimes filled with enchantment and motivation with a little sorcery for good measure. Juggling, the third movement, sonically juggles the sound back and forth, up and down among the players, trying to keep all the balls in the air at the same time.

    The sample score shows the first page of each of the three movements. At this time there is no recording available.

    Composer: Anne McGinty
    Instrumentation: Piccolo, 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute & Bass Flute
    Duration/# of Pages: ca. 10:15 / 74 pages, 8.5″ x 11″

  • naked tuba – Tuba Solo

    Alone on stage. Just a chair and a music stand, you and your tuba. Feeling so very exposed, you begin the first notes of naked tuba.

    The opening tempo is marked “slow, calm (mostly)” and you are totally free to express yourself. Although written in one continuous movement, the second tempo is marked “agitated (sometimes)” and again, the decisions are all yours.

    This piece was written for Doug Tornquist, with great respect and admiration. I've had the opportunity to work with Doug on many occasions and his playing always inspires me to write more.

    The tuba is an incredibly lyrical and versatile instrument. This unaccompanied piece celebrates the unlimited colors of this expressive instrument.

    The “Add to cart” button shows “Score & Parts”; however, naked tuba is in solo format only, as per the sample first page.
