Notes from the composer
Written for the Arabesque Duo (Russell Gillespie & Lauren Scott) and recorded on their debut CD ‘Sonata’ in 2002
Premiered by Clare Southworth and Lucy Wakeford at St. Johns Smith Square, London on February 28th 2003
Recorded by Clare Southworth and Lauren Scott on “The Bad Tempered Flute” – the flute music of Andy Scott (Nimbus Alliance NI 6156)
PLEASE NOTE – this music has been specially typeset so that page turns are possible during performance by each performer and as such consists of two parts only without a score.
“Andy Scott’s Sonata for flute and harp might just be a hit in the making. Fueled by concise and skilfully developed rhythmic themes in the outer movements and a wonderfully elegiac melody in the second, this was one of those rare moments when a significant new work strikes gold with both the performers and the audience.”
