An Imaginary Affair For Flute, Violin, and Two Cellos

Instrumentation Flute, Violin, and Two Cellos

Bio Massachusetts-native, Dayton Kinney, creates music that has won and has been recognized for numerous competitions at the international, national, and state levels. Performed in the U.S. and abroad, her music’s eclectic style is inspired from neo-romantic-ideals, juxtapositions, and accessibility. Her current compositional obsession explores the concept of the “in-between” grey-area of “tonality” and “atonality” through shapes, patterns, direction, and repetition. This explorative obsession can be found throughout her works. Her current interests are to explore other venues for music and more contemporary processes. Currently, Dayton studies with Leonardo Balada and is pursuing her Masters of Music in Composition at Carnegie Mellon University. There, she is working on several long-term projects including a symphony and a chamber opera to be performed in Pittsburg during Spring 2015. Dayton holds a Bachelor of Arts, Cum Laude with Honors in Music from Smith College. Her previous composition teachers have been Salvatore Macchia and Melinda Wagner.

Program notes Due to the very different timbres and sound aesthetics between woodwinds and strings, An Imaginary Affair plays on the dueling qualities of the flute versus the strings. Inspired by romantic relationships between men and women, the quartet goes through stages of infatuation and emotion between individuals. The strings begin with pulling and plucking at the heart string of a man, whose heart races and stops. As the heart racing cumulates to almost a swoon, the object of desire comes in as the flute. The flute’s soloistic passage allows the delicate and feminine woman introduce herself. The man, courting his love, shows his sweet and sensitive side through not overpowering the woman, allowing her to sing. His profession of love is answered back by her echoing statement. The rest of the piece follows through waves of passion, turmoil, passivity, and recollection, before the tired lovers end their bond.
