Tune of the Day: Proximité by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

Today's piece was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Paul Merkus from the Netherlands. Composed in 2011, the piece has a romantic flavor to express how personal proximity can feel. It has some resemblance to Chopin's famous Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2, and also something to do with Satie's Gnossienne No. 5. It features a very straightforward piano accompaniment, which makes it easy for flute teachers to accompany their students.
