PROGRAM NOTES

Corrections to the first printing: 
1) Bar 65 should read 8th note = c.120-126
2) At bar 295, the flute should be marked ff
3) The rehearsal mark for Bar 300 should be 5 bars later

"Serenade to Eve, After Rodin, beginning passionately lyrical and moving to an astonishing virtuosic conclusion is yet another great addition to the contemporary repertoire for flute and guitar."
            – Allan Pulker, The Whole Note (review of the Cline-Cuestas CD)
"Daniel Dorff's remarkable Serenade to Eve, After Rodin is nearly a conversation with Rodin’s statue. Its music alters in response to Eve’s changing moods. The work seems to say that being expelled from paradise is not the worst thing that can happen in life."
            – Dave Saemann, Fanfare Magazine
(review of the Cline-Cuestas CD)
