Staff Pick

“Lovely atmospheric music for four flutes!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -
This and it's companion 'Voices on the Wind' are based on the melodies of Native American music. The feeling of space conveyed in both is wonderful, with textures building and ebbing away. There is minimal use of new techniques here, with only wide vibrato and pitch bends used to add to the sonority. These are 2 very interesting pieces - enjoy them now!

Very free in nature, this work can be played in a variety of venues ranging from an echoing cathedral, to the middle of the forest.
