Four Glimpses of NightBy: Binnette Lipper
for solo flute
Inspired by a poem of the same title written by Frank Marshall Davis, this piece is in four movements that reflect the poem. The writing is expressive with searching, fluid lines in varying rhythmic patterns with changing tempi and shifting moods. Rich musical material allows the player to indulge in imagination, light and dark use of tone, more free phrasing, some light tonguing and dynamic range creating a sense of magical wonder and lightness of spirit, as if accompanying four vignettes.
