Programme Note:
The Suite for Alto Flute was written for flautist Elizabeth Leister, for premier at the University of Lethbridge at the time of her senior recital (and later for the wedding of her sister - (the church acoustics being great for the alto flute!) Although reveling in the rich tones of the lower register of the alto flute, the work attempts to explore the all the colors and possibilities of the complete range of the instrument. The exotic tone and agile teclmique of the alto flute evoked for me the movement titles.

Premiere Information:
March 1982, University Recital Hall, Lethbridge Alberta; Elizabeth Leister, alto flute
