Carl Vine's concerto Pipe Dreams, here presented for the first time as a reduction for flute and piano, is a dazzling tonal showpiece commissioned for Emmanuel Pahud and the Australian Chamber Orchestra in 2003. A strong follow-up to Vine's popular Flute Sonata, Pipe Dreams is a worthwhile contender for best flute concerto of the 21st Century.

Composer's note:

'There is something innately human about cherishing one's deepest desires while knowing that they are impossible. Part of the model in this work is also the folly that a flute - the instrument itself - might harbor its own secret wishes. In a universe where all is possible, what might a flute dream?

The work uses one of my preferred architectures: a single movement with three sections in the classic form moderate-slow-fast. Although the solo line is unashamedly virtuosic, the intention is not to dazzle but to explore as much dreaminess as possible, filtered through the willfulness of a metal pipe which believes it has no limits. There is no specific consideration in this music of the opium pipe, from which the term pipe dream originates.'
