|composer's notes:||"Nocturne for Flute" was adapted from the second movement of my Concerto for Flute, a 3-movement work premiered in 2019. It begins mysteriously, with a lilting figure in the strings, and a background of bells. An ominous beat appears in the bass drum and contrabass, followed by a plaintive flute melody which, with simulated delay effects provided by the two orchestral flutes, joins the orchestra in a swirl of sound at the climax of the piece. This tapers off into a haunting but serene concluding section. —NG|
