Three Preludes op. 18

Muczynski, R

Robert Muczynski was one of the leading American composers during the 20th century. His compositions for flute include the famous Sonata for Flute and Piano, the Duos for 2 Flutes (Op. 34a) or for Flute and Clarinet (Op. 34b), and others.

Composed in 1962, Robert Muczysnki’s Three Preludes, Op. 18, was his first foray into writing for instruments without accompaniment. These brief encore pieces were composed not long after the Sonata for Flute and Piano. The task was more difficult than he expected since the solo line is everything, with musical statements utterly exposed and somehow vulnerable.

The Preludes are fleeting excursions into moods of different character with the first being jaunty and playful. The second movement conveys a mood of serenity and expansiveness. The last movement is free-wheeling in a fast mixed meter pulse alternating between feelings of 2+3 or 3+2 that drives forward until the end.
