Romance In June

Written by Michelle Margiotta © 2011

This piece was inspired by a teenage crush, with one who will remain nameless, in the memorable summer of 1998. Some of the most adventurous, serious, funny, silly and lighthearted times were with this person.

Romance in June portrays these events with a carefree melody played by the flute. The music is somewhat unpredictable in its harmonic structure and rhythmic syncopations. The ongoing playfulness between pizzicato and arco, with the strings, demonstrates an amusing frolic of rhythm and adventure.
