“More quirky Grethen”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -
Luc Grethen took his inspiration for this piece from the beat of an old clock and the metronomic nature of this interesting trio really reflects this. It's fun to play, with the unusual harmonies adding crunch to the simple rhythmic drive.This is a very good piece for improving chamber music skills with a sense of humour - invaluable!

From the Publisher

TICK-TACK - A clock is not merely a measuring instrument, which 
indicates a precise moment in time or measures a certain lapse of 
time. A clock can also be an inspiration for a piece of music and 
thus the regular ticking of a clock is at the centre of this work for 
three flutes. The idea came to the composer while listening to the 
beat of an old clockwork mechanism. Its regular beat is represen- 
ted by an insistent 8th note movement running on incessantly in 
all three flutes. 

Performance duration (approx): 5'00"

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