“This is great!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is a great piece for bass flute which lies sensibly within its range, has a modest number of contemporary techniques and is all held together by an accompaniment that creates an other-worldly atmosphere. Experience on the bass would be an asset but as it works on the flute too this is a double-value investment!

From the Publisher

Whenever Berlin flutist Tilmann Dehnhard comes up with a new composition, it is set to be a special work in terms of sound and dramatics. In this duet commissioned by the flutist and pedagogue Klaus Spors, the bass flute takes the leading role.

In 150 measures Dehnhard spices up traditional playing styles with carefully used contemporary techniques that are easy to understand and quick to put into practice. If one follows Dehnhard‘s imagination into a deserted, large church, the magic of this work can be felt in a deeply personal way. If you are not among the lucky owners of a bass flute yet, the part can alternatively be played on the C flute.

Performance duration (approx): 4'

Difficulty guide: 8
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
