Maggio, Robert : Aninventionersary
for Two Flutes
Aninventionersary was composed for Mimi Stillman and Jeffrey Khaner, in honor of Julius Baker and in celebration of Stillman's ensemble Dolce Suono's 10th anniversary. For the Bach-themed concert, Maggio chose to incorporate motives inspired by Baker, Stillman, and Khaner, their names, the syllables therein. While this would be a trial for most composers, what Maggio has attained is "a series of warmhearted melodies that tag-teamed each other and then stylishly turned into something distinctly Maggio."
