“Imaginative writing.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This fascinating collection of ten short pieces is not just about playing contemporary techniques. Damnjanovic bases them on Serbian folk music and takes it a different direction entirely. Each one has a completely contrasting character, and the extended technique is used to enhance the melody which is generally played normally. Playing one, several or all of these in a recital would be a very imaginative piece of programme planning!

From the Publisher

MAYKA (Serbian for “mother”) is a fascinating collection of 10 short recital pieces, each inspired by Serbian folk-music traditions, enriched through a broad variety of non-traditional techniques. Serbian-born flutist Jovana Damnjanović created these teaching etudes in conjunction with her doctoral thesis, which introduces Eastern European traditions to flutists. Along with its 10 fresh and dazzling concert works, this publication includes a thorough preface on performance techniques and instructions for each etude.
