Introspective Blues #1 for Flute and Harp
The blues can reflect many moods. Introspective Blues #1 for flute and harp starts out reflecting the state of mind of a person thinking a lot about "why things are the way they are” but not ready to express it outwardly.
As the work unfolds, our “hero” gains more courage, and by the ending, we hear the outward expression that was suppressed initially.
Introspective Blues #1 was recorded by the flutist Iwona Glinka and the harpist Anna Sikorzak-Olek on their album "Gimel" (2018 - Phasma Music #002 (Distributed by Naxos)) winner of a Silver Medal from the 2018 Global Music Awards.
