“Not for the fainthearted!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

I was curious to find out what kind of music an Iranian composer living in Innsbruck would write for Emmanuel Pahud and the answer is a strange mixture of haunting melodies and virtuoso flute writing. The first of the three movements has more of the former with a fairly static harmonic structure allowing the flute to weave its magic. The Adagio Melanconico starts slowly with long sweeping phrases from the flute and has a more rhythmic central section characterised by major seconds throughout the piano part. The third movement is a whirlwind presto of triplet semiquavers that is quite exhilarating. Not for the fainthearted!
