“Wonderful music for four C flutes”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
This is another really effective piece from the pen of Anze Rozman who uses the colours of the C flutes to great effect.The opening has swirls of semiquavers between all the parts, using dynamic shading, mixing fives against fours and staggered part-writing to create the waking of Spring. The central section has the flutes in mainly unison rhythm to give stability to the structure. The opening returns, this time with raindrop effect staccatos which pierce the texture before the atmospheric ending. Imaginative writing for C flutes - wonderful!

From the Publisher

Anže Rozman's Waking of the Green Spring (Prebujanje zelene pomladi) draws together Impressionism and Minimalism as it paints an image of the titular spring erupting to life. The piece opens with the four flutes painting a mysterious running texture based in whole tones, swelling and fading in turns. The central slower section creates an almost reverent choral sound with large blocks of chords, building again into the opening textures but colored with more complex melodies and staccato runs. The work ends with a gentle spring dreamscape.
