Richard Gibson

Nightingales for Katy (1982)

for solo flute

Originally written in 1982 to celebrate the birth of flutist Stephen Pedersen's daughter, the composition represents an attempt to tackle the same kinds of problems encountered by the Baroque masters, in that Gibson uses register shifts and rapid arpeggiations to create the illusion of more than one musical line. Energetic dance-like passages vie with serene cantabile moments in a musical universe that occasionally veers toward the frantic before reaching a final reconciliation. © Karin Aurell (from her CD notes)
