Azul (Cerulean Ice - Sapphiric Fire)
Daughtrey, N

The title of Nathan Daughtrey's duet for flute and percussion, Azul, is simply Spanish for the color 'blue.' The two movements represent two opposing incarnations of the color blue. The first movement, Cerulean Ice, features only metallic keyboard percussion and begins with fairly harshly struck unison 5ths in the crotales and vibraphone. The contemplative mood is meant to suggest the vast icy-blue glaciers of Antarctica. The second movement, Sapphiric Fire, utilizes only the marimba with the flute. The 'infernal' tempo and constantly shifting meters/pulses represents the unpredictability of the element fire. It functions much like a rondo, insistently returning to the opening motivic materials, while also bringing in some elements from the first movement.

Also providing shaped and context for the work is the short, dark poem by Robert Frost, 'Fire & Ice.'

Duration: 10'10. Instrumentation: Flute, Percussion ( (5-octave marimba, vibraphone, 2-octave crotales, optional sizzle cymbal).
