Tune of the Day: Lumière by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

Today's piece was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Paul Merkus. It is an arrangement of a new piano piece, also written by Merkus in 2020.

This short piece, titled “Lumière” (French for “light”), tries to express the atmosphere of a radiant summer day. It is an Allegretto full of exuberant liveliness and playful energy. The marcato middle section is followed by a reprise of the opening theme, with richer figures and an extended coda.
