'Tre Ecloghe per Flauto, Arpa e Viola' (Three eclogues for flute, harp and viola). Each movement uses a fragment of a folk song as its melodic source. 'Ecloga della Pastora' quotes a melodic motif from a Tuscan folksong.'Ecloga aeoliana' re-composes a strain of a Peruvian folk song of the Andes region stated in the viola - measures 1-9. 'Ecloga della Montagna is based on some melodic bits and pieces from some folk tunes from the Pyrenees in Northern Spain.

I wrote the entire piece while living in Rome, Italy holding the American Academy in Rome Music Composition Fellowship. It was first performed in New York, P.S.1 Sounds from the Left Bank 1988. In 2000 it was awarded in the Kathryn Thomas International Flute Composition Competition (UK).

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
