  • Interesting, worth a look

From the Publisher

Throughout the piece, both flute and clarinet choose their own selected narrative tempo, without a specific time signature : senza misura
They never come exactly together.
The musical lines are never synchronized. The B flat clarinet enters as a solo voice after the short and freely played introduction from the flute. The clarinet is the main voice.
At the same time, the clarinet shapes ist own agogic and dynamics. The flute part serves as an embellished improvisational accompaniment with ist slowly descending motion and long quiet tones. Later in the piece, it can, ad libitum, play the short grace notes written in front of the long tones. Both instruments play independently, as if they are alone. At the same time each player has to listen to the other and use the given bar lines as an orientation for keeping more or less together.
A good suggestion would be, that when performing, the soloists do not see each other. Therefore they do not have to stand next to each other on the stage. The flute can, at will, extend the introduction by playing the beginning tones while walking onto the stage


Performance duration (approx): 3'00

Difficulty guide: 7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
