Video: Eric Ewazen’s Ballade, Pastorale and Dance for Flute, Horn and Piano

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to perform a major contemporary chamber work for horn, Eric Ewazen’s Ballade, Pastorale and Dance for Flute, Horn and Piano (cover image linked from The performance took place during a residency with the composer at our university, and our group was fortunate enough to be coached by Dr. Ewazen. The performance went well, and I’ve posted a video of each movement to YouTube (see below). The composer graciously granted his permission to share the recordings. The piece is challenging, but well worth the time spent learning it. The music is very accessible to audiences, but rewarding for the performers as well. The piece has also been orchestrated by the composer into a double concerto for flute and horn with orchestra.

Please could you let me know how I can purchase this music. I tried to order it from Pope instrument repair in the USA in July but have not received it. I have been unable to find anywhere else that sells it and would really appreciate your help as we really want to be able to play such a great piece. Many thanks.


Hi Catherine,

I would contact Ken Pope by email or phone and let him know about this. Ken runs a very good business, and I’m sure he’d be willing to help. If this doesn’t work out, I believe Hickey’s Music ( also carries this work.

Good luck!
