mp3  1.  A Cool Mountain Stream   mp3  2.  A Quiet Morning on the Lake  mp3  3.  Frolic in the Surf 

This piece was written in memory of my father.  So many childhood memories of Dad revolved around water—summer vacations spent with my family camping by a mountain stream, fishing in a lake and outings to ocean beaches near my childhood home in Southern California.  This programmatic work is in three movements.

  1. A Cool Mountain Stream utilizes the pentatonic scale to depict a stream as it meanders along, frequently bouncing over rocks and sometimes heading down a slope, eventually ending in a small waterfall that empties into a deep pool.
  2. A Quiet Morning on the Lake uses the repetitive rocking motion of the piano to represent the soothing motion of the rowboat as I spent summer vacations fishing for trout with my dad on a quiet lake in the San Bernardino Mountains.
  3. Frolic in the Surf brings out the playfulness felt at the ocean beach, while getting used to the water temperature and trying to predict when the waves will hit the shore.

Scored for flute and piano.

  1. A Cool Mountain Stream utilizes the pentatonic scale to depict a stream as it meanders along, frequently bouncing over rocks and sometimes heading down a slope, eventually ending in a small waterfall that empties into a deep pool.  During a summer vacation, my family camped by a stream that was a natural waterslide.  We spent many happy hours sliding down the waterslide into the pool below.
  2. A Quiet Morning on the Lake uses the repetitive rocking motion of the piano to represent the soothing motion of the rowboat as I spent summer vacations fishing for trout with my dad on a quiet lake in the San Bernardino Mountains.
  3. Frolic in the Surf brings out the playfulness felt at the ocean beach, while getting used to the water temperature and trying to predict when the waves will hit the shore.  Many summer days were spent on Southern California beaches with family and friends, body surfing, tanning and simply playing in the waves.

  1. Reflections of Water
    by Phyllis Avidan Louke, Fabulous Flute Music Company

    “… an attractive three-movement work …. written in memory of her father. The three movements, based on the inspiration of water, are immediately playable in a range appropriate for intermediate flutists. Two movements are in 6/8 time, the third in 3/4 with just a few mixed meters. The piano part is a true partner…”
