If you are thinking of buying a glissando headjoint, this piece will convince you that it's a very good idea. It really takes you into the heavenly world of cirrus clouds by combining the sounds possible on this headjoint with whistle tones and timbral trills. This gives the player a much wider colour palette to work with and opens up the possibility of a very creative and atmospheric performance. 

From the Publisher

“Cirrous” is an adjective that refers to the resemblance of cirrus clouds, which appear as thin, wispy strands, shaped by winds and residing at particularly high altitudes. This piece combines traditional notation with graphic elements, inviting the performer to embrace and experiment with the flexibility of the Glissando Headjoint®.
