“Unusual music for a flute group”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This unusual piece is almost Steve Reich in style with minimalist writing and interesting textures. Each part is very repetitive which will certainly challenge concentration skills rather than technical ones and the lower alto and bass parts are ideally suited to players just starting to learn them. Miscka will open up a whole new world of colour for a flute ensemble and its audience, and if you're putting together a concert it will make a fascinating contrast to other more standard repertoire.

From the Publisher


The style of this piece is skinny and essential, with echoes of the minimalism of John Adams. Ostinato rhythms in the low register of the ensemble are associated with rhythmic cycles of 3 and 4 in the middle and upper registers. The composition is characterized by blocks of sound with offset overlapping of rhythmic and melodic motifs that create a texture that is very rhythmically articulated yet euphonic, and from which spring harmonies resulting from the overlap of the repeating melodic lines of the individual instruments.

The form is divided into 3 parts in a modal style where the Doric order dominates the composition. 

Performance duration (approx): 5'
