Joan Tower Valentine Trills (1996)
Composer Note:

Valentine Trills was commissioned by flutist Carol Wincenc for her solo recital on Valentine’s Day (February 14, 1998) at Merkin Hall in NYC. She wanted something very short, and this work is the shortest work I have, [lasting] one and a half minutes. It is mostly about trills (and runs), which flutists do better and faster than almost any other instrument. (They also commission more pieces than any instrument. When the 20th century is over, I believe statistics will show that the flute repertoire has increased substantially over any other instrumental area.)
