Songs from the Mystic Realm - for flute and piano


The Belvedere Chamber Music Festival - Memphis, TN, June 2018

Program Notes

I. Entering the Mystic Realm

II. Azzurro (Blue)

III. Krasnoye Plamya (Red Flame)

     Although Songs from the Mystic Realm was not meant to be a programmatic piece, I could not prevent my thoughts from scouting this world of sounds drawn from Scriabin’s so-called “mystic” (Prometheus) chord.

     Entering the Mystic Realm is a fast and short introduction of the sonority of the “mystic” chord rearranged in a scale.

     Azzurro is a leisurely sail through the harmony of the mystic realm. The title of this movement is inspired by a magic place, Grotto Azzurro in the island of Capri.

     Finally, Krasnoye Plamya (Red Flame) is a fiery race. The title is homage to Scriabin.
