  1. Fuging Machine

    Composer: Emmons, Stephen
    Instrumentation: Trio Instruments: Bassoon, Clarinet, Flute, Piano
    Genre: Contemporary
    For Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon and Piano, the "Fuging Machine" is about a machine in a factory that spends its life making widgets. After a while on the factory line, it discovers an ability to construct fugues, something its designers never intended. A fugue subject, based in part on the “mechanical music” of the factory, arises in the clarinet. The machine expands this into a full fugue, breaking away from the drudgery of making widgets. By the end of the piece, the machine goes back to making widgets, but its existence is enriched by its newfound ability. Learn More

After a brief transition, the first of six variations on the theme Nettleton (Come Thou Fount) is heard. The piece concludes with a fortissimo statement of the Nettleton tune. Learn More

  4. Sonata for Flute

    Composer: York, Barbara
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Flute, Piano
    Genre: Contemporary

    with Piano

    This piece was written for Dr. Catherine (Kate) Bergman from Emporia State University KS.  The biggest problem I had in writing this piece was that Kate is so NICE that there seemed to be almost nothing to write about! So I decided to write a piece about being “nice” and what it is like to be really “nice”, especially for a flute player, the flute being such a “nice” instrument in the first place.

    The first two movements, “A Cheerful Heart” and “Kindness” are, I think, fairly obvious, but I decided to do something different in the third movement and allow Kate (and our player) to have a little temper tantrum and lose her prevalent composure. In the third movement we hear the teacher instructing patiently and persistently yet growing, over time, increasingly impatient and frustrated. By the end she has lost much of her “niceness” and stamping her foot and has a minor fit of temper, still a large step for someone who started out where she did at the beginning of the piece.

    I always enjoy, even in my most serious or traditional music, having a little sense of humor lest we all take ourselves too seriously.

  5. Sonata for Flute and Piano

    Composer: Emmons, Stephen
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Flute, Piano
    Genre: Contemporary
    For Flute and Piano, the second movement of this "Sonata", Adagio, was written first and in large part contains the essential thematic material found in the other two movements. It is in ternary form and features beautiful, pastoral, innocent melodies in the flute. For the most part, the piano accompaniment consists of gently undulating major and minor chords that reinforce the modal and tonal centers of the movement. The first movement, Introduction, was composed last. It features melodic and rhythmic figures introduced in a fragmentary and sometimes dissonant way, inviting the listener into a somewhat stark musical landscape. The third movement, Rondo, is a brisk seven part rondo that recalls motives and themes from the first two movements. It features four statements of the rondo theme and three digressions interspersed between these statements. The highly rhythmic piano accompaniment creates a rhythmic bed over which athletic flute lines are woven. Learn More

  6. Three for Three

    Composer: Emmons, Stephen
    Instrumentation: Trio Instruments: Bassoon, Clarinet, Flute
    Genre: Contemporary
    For Flute, Clarinet and Bassoon, "Three for Three" was named simply because it is three movements for three players. One features an opening motive of a major second, and it is this interval, with its associated rhythm, that is the driving force of the first and last portions of the movement. The middle section of One (the piece is ABA form) features the opening motive of the third movement’s theme. In Two, gently undulating rhythms provide a backdrop for the flute, which contains most of the melodic content. Three begins with all voices in unison on the main theme, which then breaks into a propulsive minimalist section. A fugato is heard with this theme as the subject prior to the movement’s end.
