Michael Hoppe’s gentle melodies are served well by the inspired interplay of piano, viola, and flute (Tim Wheater, in a starring role). The songs flow sweetly and playfully, like butterflies reconnoitering a spring garden, alighting momentarily on leaves, and then dispersing. Two versions of the title song bookend the album–the first played by the trio and the last a haunting solo piano turn by the composer.

The soft music on “Alto Flute Romances” is composed with a slow tempo to take advantage of the wind-in-a-cave sound of the flute. Perfect for slowing down, relaxing, calming oneself, or playing as a lullaby. Some of the pieces sound a bit alike, but they are all in a similar tempo which adds to the relaxation effect. The “Lavender Shadows” is my favorite on the entire CD. Very nice.
