Programme Note:
Three Moods for Flute - John W.N. Palmer 2009
I wrote this for Anne (my wife) and Orchestra Kingston. The entire piece can be performed on flute, but it works best if the 1st movement is played on Alto Flute, the 2nd on Flute and the 3rd on Piccolo.
All 3 movements are thematically related. The melodic motif is evident in the opening bar of each.
The 1st movement is an Andante that allows the Alto Flute to demonstrate its rich, sonorous tone colour and flexibility. This movement is contemplative in nature.
The 2nd movement is an Allegretto which highlights the flute's flexibility in the low to mid-upper register. The lyrical melody morphs into a series of brief variations.
The 3rd movement has a Celtic, dance-like feel and is a playful tune in 6/8 time. The rhythmic energy and drive should be relentless; don't let up on the intensity.
Commissioned by: Orchestra Kingston

Premiere Information:
