Dolce Tormento by Kaija Saariaho
For Solo Piccolo/Narrator
Duration: 6:00

Dolce Tormento was written for Camilla Hoitenga, who gave the world premiere at the Finnish Institute, Paris, on Sept 1 2004. This work includes some multiphonics, and one characteristic of this piece is an unstable playing between octaves, with the desired sound vacillating freely between the octaves with fragile expression. The notation for this is given in example.
