Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Music composed by American composer Seann Branchfield and performed by Seann Branchfield (piano) and Nicole Schroeder (flute). Music is melodic and has a traditional center, utilizing various modes. The work is entitled "Gateway" as it is intended to be gateway music for rock and pop audiences not accustomed to contemporary classical music, rejecting a lot of 20th century concert music practices. Each piece is intended to be accessible while maintaining basic integrity as a traditional concert work. Most of these pieces are most appropriately categorized as instrumental songs for flute and piano.
