Product Description

McGuire: Prelude 3 for solo flute

This prelude is from an ongoing series in which the composer hopes to include most instruments, learning and exploring their characteristics. Although the series began in 1975 and totalled 10 by 1985, Prelude 3 remained unfinished until November 1985 when an entirely fresh piece was composed. A concise, energetic piece resulted– the only uncommon feature being its use of harmonics and glissandi.

The composer studied flute at the RSAMD in 1965/66 in the Junior Department with David Nicholson and Prelude 3 is dedicated to him.

Composed November 1985

Dedicated to David Nicholson
