Phrase re phrase

What’s the difference between a recorder and a flute? The flute is more modern, so at least technically more agile, you’d think. So I decided to turn the tables, and give the flute a melodious part, while the recorder plays crazy syncopated stuff against it. Of course then at some point the roles reverse. In the end the main thing remaining is the larger range of the flute. The tonal difference is neither here nor there: while this piece could probably be massaged into a duet for two recorders, I like the contrast between the instrument.
