“Prelude” for flute solo by Mary Ann Joyce

In Prelude,  the poet John Millington Synge (1871-1909) takes us away not only from the City with all its noise, chatter and chaos, but from our own internal distractions and fever-pitched activities as well,

Here, for this brief and fleeting moment in time when Nina Assimakopoulos translates the poem into music on her flute, the trinity of poem, nature and music are one and the same.
