"Free Flight" was composed by Marilyn Harris in the rondo form and
features the flute and piano in a "jazzy" style.
After a short, rubato opening by the flute
and piano, the tempo increases as the piano repeats a syncopated
rhythmic motif which is the underpinning for the rest of the
piece. The flute enters playing a melody (the "A" section)
with exciting jazz rhythms and interesting intervalic jumps.
This is followed by a contrasting "B" section, a repeat
of the "A" section followed by a solo piano "C"
section. After returning to the "A" section, a "D"
section is followed by a variation of the "A" section.
After an exciting romp through the many twists of this rondo
form, it quickly comes to a relaxed and satisfying conclusion.
"Free Flight" is a GRADE 4 flute
solo and highlights the performer's mastery of syncopated rhythms,
varied articulations, large intervallic jumps and contrasting
dynamics. The duration is approximately 4.5 minutes.
A solo flute part and piano score are included.
