Tune of the Day: Largo by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

Today's piece is the second movement from the three-part “Sonata per flauto e pianoforte” by our guest composer Paul Merkus from the Netherlands.

This slow central movement is characterized by a Largo tempo and many tied-over appoggiaturas in the flute. The piano part plays towards a climax, with both activity and dynamics increasing. The central section then exposes some simple thematic material, which evolves into a reprise of the atmospheric climax. This second time, however, the conclusion is different, so that the middle part ends up in the original key of E minor.
