Serenade for Flute and Harp

Daniel Dorff (composer)


  • Flute
  • Harp


When commissioned by the celebrated Sparx Duo, Dorff's thoughts immediately went to the French medieval style that had so captured his attention in his college days. The resulting five-movement duo reflects the music of the period and includes as the fourth movement a statement of the 14th-century love song "Helas! Je voy mon cuer a fin venir" by Solage. Dorff's neo-medieval sound is full of plaintive lyricism and driving dance rhythms. Each of the five movements may be performed individually for special occasions, as well as in recital as a 16-minute suite. For advanced performers.
