Heritage, Lee – Summer Rain

SUMMER RAIN for flute and piano by Lee Heritage. Lush harmonic language and toccata-like textures invoke the shifting moods of a summer storm in this new work by Lee Heritage.


SKU: B730Categories: Sheet Music, Flute and Piano, Advanced

A lyrical prelude opens the piece with an ascending flute melody and gentle cross rhythms in the piano hinting at the storm to come.  A cloudburst interrupts this Adagio with running sixteenths in the flute punctuated by syncopated chords in the piano.  A dialogue of sixteenth notes between flute and piano moves forward with optimistic energy until dissolving into a return of the prelude.  This piece is an excellent choice as a recital opener. (4’) Grade IV.
