"Expresso" for Expandable Flute Choir, is a lively piece that lasts but only a few minutes. Composed originally for a small woodwind quintet in 1999, it was reworked in 2010 and then 2013 to create a more fluid piece as flute choir fit the mood better.The title "Expresso" is meant to be a play on the words Espresso and Express. Having never been someone who became used to the taste of coffee, the aroma from Espresso had nonetheless been quite tantalizing. I saw the movement of someone's coffee in their cup one day as it spun around, and I realized that something similar could be done with the way a single chord progression can be inverted, which lead to the simplistic chord progression that moves along at a quick pace in Expresso.This is one of those pieces that needs to start slower during rehearsal and work up to a faster tempo. Pushing the tempo at performance is an amazing rush if you can, but while the melody is simple, I have always wanted for it to be still an emotional ride.Feel free to contact me at to discuss this or any of my other works.
