Three Fairy Songs for Solo Flute

Three Fairy Songs for Solo FluteRevised version of a piece I wrote some time ago.  Fairy music, wrote folklorist Redfern Mason in his The Song Lore of Ireland, “is music of a perilous fascination for mortals." He refers to “its delicate aroma, and says that it has also about it “something dreamy and hallucinatory, as though the notes were of ivory or mother-of-pearl."…See More

"I had no problem playing the Waltz file.  I thought it a pleasant laid-back piece, certainly as good as other professional music in this manner.  The style reminded me very much of George Winston, which, since he's one of the more…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
Jon Corelis was born in California and grew up in and around Chicago, where he earned a degree in Classical Languages and Literatures at the College of the University of Chicago. He later took a doctorate in Classics at Stanford, and taught Classics and Humanities at Stanford, the University of California, and the University of Minnesota. His poetry, criticism, essays, reviews, and translations have been published in books, magazines, newspapers, and web sites in nine countries, and he has given lectures and readings by invitation in America and Europe. His music has been featured on a literary web site and performed in concert in the U.S and as part of YouTube performance series by professional musicians.

I usually don't include scores to accompany the audio files I post on this site, since I offer some of my scores for sale on the internet, and it wouldn't be appropriate also to have free copies elsewhere on the internet. I'll be glad to email a score pdf for private study to any member of this forum without charge.

In this blog post I'll mention two recent articles from that site which composers may find interesting.

Brief review: A Medieval Songbook: Troubadour & Trouvere

Posted on June 13, 2019 at 4:57pm 0 Comments

A Medieval Songbook: Troubadour & Trouvere by Feltcher Collins, Jr. et al.  (University Press of Virginia, 1982) is a valuable resource for performers and listeners of medieval music.  

Although the phrase Medieval music is likely to suggest to the general listener Gregorian chant and the church music of such composers as Hildegard von Bingen, there also exists a considerable body of Medieval secular song, most notably by the Minnesingers of the…

Brief review: Complete Country Dance Tunes from Playford's The Dancing Master, edited by Jeremy Barlow

Posted on May 27, 2019 at 12:23pm 2 Comments

Complete Country Dance Tunes from Playford's The Dancing Master, edited by Jeremy Barlow (Faber Music 1986) may be of little interest to most people, but of the highest interest to those interested in its particular subject. Playford's Dancing Master was a collection of traditional songs with basic dance notation which went through numerous editions in the 17th and 18th centuries. It's usually described as a collection of English tunes, but many of them have origins…

Brief Review: The Great Walz

Posted on April 25, 2019 at 10:00am 0 Comments

The Great Waltz is a classic "Hollywoodization" bio-pic, one which hardly pretends to be accurate, but which uses the life story of a historical character as a basis for atmosphere and entertainment. In this case the subject is "The Waltz King" Johann Strauss II, who was responsible for the craze for the dance that conquered Vienna and much of Europe in the mid 19th…
