I sometimes compose for my own amusement but I have no delusions of creating anything that anyone else would like to hear.
In one of my ideas, I want a long sustained flute note to bridge two movements. The other instruments will stop on a chord but the flute will continue. The next movement will begin on another chord in which the flute's note serves a different role.
So, the note might be too long to play comfortably or at all. I was wondering whether I could give the illusion of this impossibly long note by requesting two players to collaborate. One will begin and fade out when necessary and the other would come in. A couple of such handovers should be sufficient.
Is the idea feasible?
