Chiaroscuro is a charming four-movement suite for solo flute. Schocker's title refers to a Renaissance painting technique using dramatic contrasts between lightness and dark. Each movement (I. Andante, II. Minuet, III. Sarabande, IV. Allegro picante) offers a unique reference and connection to old and new worlds, making the music fresh and fascinating as a whole. Any one of the movements may stand alone as a solo recital piece.
