"Three Flirtations" is a musical description of courtship. The three movements are cyclical in that the recurring descending minor triad "motif of love" occurs in all three movements. "Innocent" is a flirtation between two good friends whose friendship is blossoming into love but they don’t quite know it. The movement begins playfully with dotted rhythms and short scale motifs. The "motif of love" appears several times within the playful sections. Towards the end of the movement, the playfulness becomes tenderer as the couple senses, but is not quite sure that there is something more to the friendship. The playfulness returns, but the movement ends with uncertainty about the depth of the relationship. "Sultry" can be described as a dance of seduction with both parties overtly expressing their attraction to each other, yet with an air of mystery. The "motif of love" appears only a few times in this movement as underlying suggestion that the attraction is based on more than the physical. The movement ends more tenderly than it began therefore reinforcing the underlying love. This movement can be played on English Horn and Flugel Horn. "Coy" begins with the "motif of love" transformed into a staccato teasing motif. The more aggressive teasing and playfulness permeate this movement but two lyrical sections that are more innocent in nature interrupt it. The ending builds in intensity along with the passion of the two lovers but ends with a brief return to the playful ideas . Both players play from the score.
