"Summer Music" for flute (or violin) and guitar was written for an annual summer concert given at the Laurel Hill Mansion in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia in 1992. The Revolutionary War era setting inspired a piece that is generally pastoral in character and in a direct American style. The short prelude is followed by a dance with popular inflections and a contrasting trio section. The berceuse is a gently rocking lullaby. The piece concludes with a more extended movement in a concise sonata form.
Composer and guitarist Allen Krantz heads the guitar program at Temple University in Philadelphia and is composer in residence for the chamber group, 1807 & Friends. His works include orchestral and chamber music as well as many pieces involving the guitar. "Summer Muisc" has been recorded by flutist Deborah Carter and Allen Krantz for the DTR label.
"music made of open intervals and plain melody that achieved its effect through economy and unhurried lyricism....similar to Copland’s American style, but the four scenes have their own voice and energy." - Philadelphia Inquirer, PA
“This lovely work seemed drenched with melancholy and nostalgia, thanks to the folk like, flowing character of the melodies and the skill with which the work was assembled.” - The Spectator - Raleigh Durham, NC
“...a score notable for its melodic grace and musical variety.” - Trenton Courier-Post, NJ
“I found this compostion magical.” - Naples Daily News, FL
