Tune of the Day: Monologue by Paul Merkus
Today's piece was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Paul Merkus from the Netherlands. It was written in early 2007.
Although the famous “Syrinx” for flute solo by Debussy is very inspiring for the early flute student, it can also be a bridge too far. This small piece called “Monologue” may be a good exercise in free rubato playing and as such an easier alternative and a step-up towards the real “Syrinx” at maybe a later stage.
