Concerto For Flute And Orchestra. Study Score edition. First performed at the Flanders Festival in Brussels 12th October 2001.
I have been very familiar with the flute since my earliest pieces. I like the sound in which breathing is ever present and with timbral possibilities that befit my musical language: the instrument's body makes it possible to write phrases that go through grinding textures coloured with phonemes whispered by the flutist which gradually go towards pure and smooth sounds.
Duration 18 minutes. Solo part is also available on sale. Conductor's score and orchestral parts are available on hire only.
