Program Note

An Unsubstantial Territory is dedicated to the inHale duo. Its color and texture reflect sunsets on Folly’s Cove in Cape Ann, Massachusetts, and the following passage from Virginia Woolf’s The Waves : “But when we sit close together, …we melt into each other with phrases. We are edged with mist. We make an unsubstantial territory.” Composed for piccolo and alto flute, it is also conceived as a tuning etude for these two very difficult-to-tune members of the flute family.
