Lydian Impromptu
By Anthony St. Pierre February 2008

Like the Phrygian Impromptu, also available on the ARS website, the Lydian Impromptu uses mirror image rhythmic melodic construction (i.e. the rhythm of the first half of the tune reverses itself in the second half). Except for a brief passage in Db (Lydian scale), there are no particular technical complications. Duration: 1:45

The composer performs on the recording offered here. The recorder is a Zen-on alto after Bressan.
