Diabelli Project 094 - Piece for Solo Flute

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This week's flash composition is a piece for solo flute. (click on image to enlarge) The very nature of flash composition (or flash writing) is that you only have a very short amount of time to create. And when it's done, it's done. I always get further into the music with a single line instrument -- less notes per measure. And I often have time to add expression marks. But not in this case. So here it is, without any phrasing or dynamics. I was tempted to put them in after the fact, but that would be cheating. The project is about presenting the actual results of the session. Clean-up is for later.

And there's no reason why you couldn't clean this up as well -- or even add to it. As with all the Diabelli Project sketches, I offer this to one and all to use as they wish. Just be sure to share the results!
