Tilmann Dehnhard is one of the most imaginative contemporary writers of music for the flute and this is another extremely good piece. The unifying factor is the note A for the piano which is constant throughout. Above this the flute weaves its magic with a mixture of elusive melodic fragments combined with a more rhythmic and jazz-influenced central section. All the required techniques are fully explained and it's all completely approachable and playable. The result is a piece that will be enjoyed by everyone - I've already bought my copy!
