Tune of the Day: Monologue II by Paul Merkus

for solo flute

Today's piece is a new contribution from our guest composer, Paul Merkus. It is an extension of the earlier opus 48, which includes the first “Monologue” for flute solo.

This second “Monologue” is less brief than its predecessor, and consists of three parts. In the first part of the piece we find ever higher sliding motives with quite some chromaticism, while the central part features whirling upward movements, which finally culminate in a reprise of the opening slides.
