From the Publisher
The solo flute piece Solo III consists of two contrasting movements. The first is like a single, endless melody and it tests the sound quality of the flautist, and their ability to create long melodic phrases and a long, continuous musical form. The whole movement is based on a quarter-tone scale. The Presto is technically very demanding and virtuoso. It flows in a very fast perpetual motion in semiquavers. The movement begins mysteriously in the lower register of the flute and gradually the music moves towards the upper register. At the same time, the texture becomes more complex with hidden polyphony. It culminates in a wild prestissimo.
Performance duration (approx): 10'
