Birdsong Rhapsody II

By Michael Hannan

Regular price $15.00 Sale

Solo flute, c.7'40.   Grade 8

Birdsong Rhapsody II is in seven texturally differentiated sections. The second and the fourth of these are transcriptions of the songs of the Pied Butcherbird recorded in South-East Queensland. All the other sections represent variations of melodic ideas found in these transcriptions. Sections 1, 5 and 7, although derived from the Pied Butcherbird's songs, are influenced by decorative elements in traditional Japanese shakuhachi (end-blown bamboo flute) music.

Composed 2022
