From the Publisher

The Thieving Fermata started out as an exploration of additive rhythm in 5/8 for 7 flutes, 5 concert, 1 alto and 1 bass. A simple flute theme was broken down into individual parts and the semiquaver gaps gradually filled by other flutes. The piece develops and then returns to a slightly challenging semiquaver rhythm at K.



Throughout the twist and turns of the piece the quaver pulse should remain relentlessly constant.

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