Dragonflies, for flute and piano, is a piece for two players continuously connected, in parallel flight or emerging from within one another’s sound: like two dragonflies whisking and darting about, or seemingly frozen mid-air. Composed for Abigail Walsh and Pei-I Wang, Dragonflies aimed to showcase their ensemble playing, virtuosity and sensitivity. Based on a continuously recurring harmonic sequence, like a chaconne, coupled with the freedom of an impromptu, this duo captures stasis and motion in one.
“It was a joy to explore textural, dynamic, and tonal possibilities in Yvonne Freckmann’s atmospheric Dragonflies.” – Abigail Walsh & Pei-I Wang.
Length: 6 min.
