Quick Overview

Written for the Dinosaur Annex Ensemble of Boston in the summer of 1990, Lee Hyla’s Ciao Manhattan is one of his most commonly performed chamber pieces. Arranged for Alto Flute (doubling C Flute), Viola, Cello and Piano, it is a brief and introspective piece that expands slowly in its opening from the narrow middle register to a more expansive view of its material by the end. Variations on the initial idea shared by the alto flute and viola near the beginning grow more animated as the piece proceeds, but the ending restores the quiet notes of the opening measures. Ciao Manhattan makes a great addition to the Carl Fischer chamber music collection.
