Sargon's Flute: A Pedagogical Discussion

by Van Winkle, Lisa K.

Abstract (Summary)
An examination of the works for flute and piano of twentieth-century American composer Simon A. Sargon; a comparison of Sargon’s works for flute and piano to works within the standard flute repertoire. Includes biographical information, a historical perspective of graded and nongraded literature guides, a review of current repertoire resources, and a historical background and detailed analysis of The Queen’s Consort (1982), Dusting Around With Scott’s Rag (1994), Sunflowers (1997), and Tarantela for Two Flutes and Piano (2004). Sargon’s works were evaluated based on the rubric set forth in the National Flute Association’s (NFA) resource guide, Selected Flute Repertoire: A Graded Guide for Teachers and Students (2001) and compared to literature contained within the NFA resource guide. Includes a catalog of Sargon’s works, his curriculum vitae, and interviews with the composer. 14
