Tune of the Day: Fantaisie by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

Today's piece was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Paul Merkus. It is a recent arrangement of a piano piece written back in 2004.

This “Fantaisie” is an impromptu based on a calm choral melody, harmoniously set over many chords in root position, supplemented with plenty of sevenths and other additions. The exposition is followed by a fanciful interlude, before the more tranquil middle part brings peace back. The piece ends with a reprise, in which the opening melody is played again, now accompanied by even more resounding chords.
