Flutes and Piano (2011)

Two pieces of instrumental music. One is for five flutes, the other for piano solo. Both have been performed in Belgrade, Serbia, in the early nineties. The quintet is an exercise in democracy for five players. Shattered for piano explores the poetry of broken things.

Full Description

Circle, a sunny piece for five flutes composed in 1994, is an exercise in democracy for five performers. Each performer picks their path through a collection of rhythmical phrases. The accidental clashes between the individual lines fuse into a unique, rhythmical flow. By contrast, long, irregular, thick harmonies of Shattered for piano from 1991, lonely, isolated notes, and abrupt changes in register, rhythm and dynamic, explore the poetry of broken things. The flute quintet was recorded by Jakov Srejovic Flute Consort which at the time of the recording (autumn 1994) consisted of: Tamara Vucic, Milica Jevic, Branka Matijasevic, Petra Radulovic and Ljubomir Dimitrijevic (flutes). Shattered for piano was recorded by Anita Tomasevich in May 1992. Both recordings were created in the Studio of the Belgrade Music Academy. Both have been performed in Belgrade, Serbia, during the nineties.
