Other Information

The collection of six Bagatelles for solo Flute are all fairly short in duration. With an understated character that is mellow and whimsical in nature at times. Harmonically the music is mainly tonal in character. But with the additional element of using modes and scales which do not always fall into a conventional major/minor relationship. Rhythmically the music does use syncopated rhythms and alternating time signatures to a small degree. Which contributes towards a sense of fluid rhythmic movement in some of the music.
