A Young Person's Hommage

for Flute and Clarinet (2013)

 

A Young Person's Hommage takes the idea of a variation quite literally by only using the notes from the theme used in AYPGTTO and simply augmenting lengths and overlapping neighboring notes in the theme to create new harmonies. The order in which notes are introduced are the same order in which the notes can be heard in the original theme.

 

Premiered by the Cardon Ensemble in the Britten Centenary Concert for Composers, Cardiff.
