FLUTE + PIANO
COMMISSIONED BY CINCINNATI SOUNDBOX
Commissioned for Cincinnati Soundbox's inaugural concert, IMOGEN for flute + piano weaves together several made-up folk songs to tell the stories of three very different Innogen or Ingen, the Old Irish word for maiden. In this piece I return to my Gaelic heritage to find ways to help the piano and flute evoke the bagpipes, bodhrán, celtic harp, and penny whistle. Brought to life by flutist Chia-Chen Feng and pianist Brianna Matzke, this piece premieres on November 13th, 8:00 pm, at Hoffner Lodge in Cincinnati, Ohio.
