"Prelude #1 for Flute and Marimba" was written in 2005, and was premiered on Nov. 20th, 2005 at UW-Oshkosh. A post-tonal work with some serial elements, "Prelude #1" involves several extended flute techniques (flutter tongue, jet-whistle, etc.) and offers improvised sections for both players. A demanding work for both flute and marimba, this piece will require constant communication between performers. Recommended for advanced students - good recital piece for either flute or marimba.
