Porphyria's Lover
For flute and piano

 

Fribbins explains “I have attempted to capture the delicacy of Schumann and nineteenth-century romanticism generally, the elegiac, the passion, and also the sense of early Romantic tender warmth (that on occasions can seem almost smothering). The gentle madness takes the form of dissonant clusters, which return in different forms throughout the work (I was thinking in particular of the strange dissonances in ‘Einsame Blumen’ from the piano pieces Waldscenen, Op.82). There is also a recurring melodic idea (marked ‘teneramente’ in the score), which returns in different guises, sometimes as a transparent shadow of before, sometimes darker and twisted, sometimes slower or quicker.”
