From the Publisher

Colours that mix, shades that change and rhythms that develop are just some of the aspects that make Dehnhard's compositions so special. The short, light miniatures are small, self-contained works of art with great melodic expressiveness, which are not only fun to work on in class, but also convincing on the concert stage.

In gentle images that tell of our world's treasures, positive feelings, quiet experiences or silent moments, each piece traces moments that show themselves with each breath in a new light and change from all sides. Whether it is the spray of the waves, the sparkle of a gemstone or a dragon in the sky, there are always new nuances in color and sound, and thus infinite possibilities that are composed kaleidoscopically before our eyes. As if by itself, it carries on one piece by piece, creating moods and igniting images in front of the inner eye.

In addition to their inspiring melodies, the miniatures focus on a characteristic rhythm whose timing, in combination with the jazzy harmonies, turns them into little pearls of modern flute literature. They almost exclusively use traditional playing techniques and rarely exhaust the range of the recorder in the high register. The enclosed CD of full, play-along recordings supports and completes the edition.
