Dance of the Naiads
Dance of the Naiads is a colorful and robust work for Flute Choir. This twisted dance depicts the bestial games of the Satyrs and Nymphs of Greek mythology. The piece characterizes the sexual advances of the Satyrs as well as the sensual beauty of the Naiads, who are elegant nymphs of the water. The instrumentation utilizes 2 soprano flutes, (with a double to piccolo), alto flute and bass flute. Dance of the Naiads is rewarding chamber work for players of moderate to advanced level playing.
