Shakespeare's famous 'All the world's a stage' monologue (delivered with some pomposity by the cynical Jaques in As You Like It) provides the stimulus for these character pieces for flute and piano that represent, and include, Shakespeare's description of the 'seven ages' of man. The performance directions ask the players to read the texts and use them to interpret the music with all their subtlety and skill.
