Two dances, “Buckley’s Favorite Reel” and the “Saratoga Hornpipe” can be found in early 19th century collections of American dance music. The setting recalls the jubilant, foot-stomping, rhythmical drive of the country fiddlers, banjoists and washtub-bassists who played the music.

Weait - The Gentle Calliope for 8 flutes (3'15) PDF

SKU: 7608-pdf

Composed for 8 flutes, this work is based on clusters of pitches mainly between the notes in the two octaves above the flute's low d-natural. Rhythms are not difficult. The title is intended to invoke Calliope, the Greek Muse of heroic poetry, not the keyboard-operated steam whistle. It is dedicated to Dr. Lisa Jelle and the Capital University Conservatory of Music Flute Ensemble who gave the first public performance.
