The Thieving Fermata (The five eight mantra)
Shipping calculated at checkout
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.
