"In the Shadow of the Great Sphinxis the third movement from the "Stone Suite," arranged for Bass Flute and Piano. The "Stone Suite" is a four movement work for solo flute and flute choir, commissioned by Dr. Chris Potter, in which the soloist is to perform on a different flute for each movement. This work opens with a pensive theme utilizing an Egyptian mode, which leads way to a festive dance. In the flute choir version, the mood is augmented by the use of tambourine, drum, and finger cymbals.
