Tune of the Day: Allegretto by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

Today we have a new contribution from our guest composer from the Netherlands, Paul Merkus. This Allegretto was originally written in the summer of 1986 as a piece for solo piano, and later arranged for flute and piano.

After the exposition of the main theme in C major and the repetition in octaves, the piece modulates almost imperceptibly to A major in order to gradually work towards a climax. What follows is a tender interlude, followed by a more elaborate reprise of the main theme, concluded by a powerful ending.
