FRAGMENTS for flute and cello is a one-movement work in which I was concerned with the relationship of two parts moving from an area of linear independence, where the lines are juxtaposed in an almost collage-like manner, to areas where the two parts move in parallel to participate mutually in the coloring of a single line. The work was written while I was a fellow at the American Academy in Rome for an exchange concert with the French Academy. It was premiered there in 1972 by Pierre-Yves Artaud, flute, and Alain Mounier, cello.
