Alicia Dine (flute) with Richard Roderick Jones (piano)
Persephone Dances is a lyrical, free-flowing single movement piece for flute and piano lasting 10 minutes 24 seconds. There are five main sections. Persephone was the ancient Greek goddess of Spring who spent six months with Hades under the earth and the other six upon the earth. The sections describe these periods. The first pits the piano with its explosions against the flutes melodic line - the piano's sustaining pedal held down above which the flute meditates and cascades. The second is more gentle.with the flute and piano intertwined. There are elements of freedom for the players in the third section.The fourth section is like the first with the piano reprise of the gentle flute and piano writing of the second section and the peace ends peacefully.
