Visiting with Cecil Forsyth

Flute and Horn
Optional narrator

Approx. 11 minutes


Inspired by Cecil Forsyth’s important but quirky book Orchestration, this work shows the author’s approach to these disparate instruments, while forcing the instruments to work together. There are two versions, one where there is a separate narrator, and one where the horn and flute players narrate themselves.

Commissioned by Peggy Moran with Kent Leslie, Bernhard Scully and Angela Winter.
