From the Publisher
Originally for recorder and piano, this flute version was premiered by Wissam Boustany.
Inspiration for the piece was taken from an Aztec exhibition at the British Museum:
"Part of the exhibition explored the role that music and dance played in Aztec life. The primitive recorder together with trumpets and drums were used as an important part of the formal ritual ceremonies (including, rather gruesomely, human sacrifice) that took place to appease the many Gods which the Aztecs worshipped, as well as for other, more informal occasions in thier social and cultural life."
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
