AUGUST MUSIC for flute duo and strings I. The Wise II. The Lovers III. The Fools

duration ca. 13 minutes

G. Schirmer, Inc. New York, NY


Composer’s Note Ingmar Bergman explains the title of his 1955 comedy Sommarnattens leende (Smiles of a Summer Night) in a signal line of dialogue. Upright in her wheelchair, an aged doyenne tartly observes to her footman that the summer night smiles three times: once, for the fools, who know nothing: once for the lovers, who know too little; and lastly for the old, who—like herself— know too much. In August Music, I’ve reversed the order of the smiles—the gleeful fools have the last word—and saluted that worldly doyenne by renaming her movement for her wisdom, rather than her age. Otherwise, these three brief portraits—rueful, rapt, and headlong by turns—are meant both as a salute to that rich film and as a gift to Sir James and to Lady Jeanne Galway. Fools they are not, but I know few musicians (or spouses) at once so loving and so wise. – Mark Adamo


to Sir James and to Lady Jeanne Galway, with love
