|Homage: a Folk Concerto for flute and orchestra or strings
|Homage - A Folk Concerto (1988) is folk-like in nature, although no actual material has been borrowed from folk music. The first movement is simple and unaffected with a few bursts of excitement and leads to the second movement with no interruption. The latter is a cadence-like solo for flute, free and expressive, over a four-bar chord progression played by the orchestra. The final movement is a frenzied dance, typical of the folk music of the Greek islands. However, somewhere along the way, some J.S. Bach creeps in uninvited. This piece is dedicated to Dr. Everett Timm, past Dean of the LSU School of Music, as a personal tribute and token of appreciation for his numerous contributions to music in Baton Rouge. It is meant to be a musical portrait.
