“Something different!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
It's easy to see why this piece was a winner in the NFA Newly Published Music Awards. Both Skazkas are a real challenge to play as they deliver the world of the fantasy with a combination of rhythmic invention and unpredictable motifs. Although without contemporary techniques, the virtuoso writing fully supports the musical intentions and creativity. This is something different - give it a try!

From the Publisher

Bulgarian piano prodigy Lora Al-Ahmad traveled to New York City in her teens to further her training, and while at the Mannes School began studying composition with Lowell Liebermann. Among the first fruit of her fascinating talents is Two Skazkas for solo Flute. Skazka is a Russian word for story, with a particular connotation of fantasy-inspired fairy tales. Al-Ahmad's untitled skazkas enchant, leaving the actual stories to our own imaginations. Two Skazkas quickly captured the imagination of Stefan Hoskuldsson (Principal Flute of the Chicago Symphony) who has performed the work internationally.
