When It Rains / The River Stands Still

Call to order

From the composer: “The title when it rains / the river stands still is a two-line poem I wrote to evoke a moment that included a stunning view of the Iowa River in a rainfall. Singing and playing simultaneously is explored in this work as a connection between voice and flute is particularly strong with the alto. The alto flute often fits the vocal range more agreeably than the higher-pitched concert flute, and, as Theobald Boehm wrote of his invention in The Flute and Flute Playing, ‘Because of the great facility for modulation of the full, sonorous tones of this flute, it is adapted to music in the song style, and for accompanying a soprano voice.’” Intermediate-level circular breathing is required for a short portion of this piece. Honorable Mention, 2021 National Flute Association Newly Published Music Competition, Low Flutes Category.
