One movement piece for solo flute

While living in London in 1977, my sister went to a record release event where James Galway signed copies of his latest LP. While he signed her album she mentioned that she had a brother who was a composer. He replied “Ask him to write a piece for me.” So I did.


A short one-movement piece, Soliloquy alternates between sections with and without meter, ranges in tempo from very slow to very fast, and explores all registers of the instrument. As the title implies, the piece is essentially an interior self-dialogue.
