"...Through the mirror into a new light"
Composer: Geibler
Publisher: Zimmermann
Instrumentation: Flute

"...through the mirror into a new light..." is not a showy virtuoso piece for the flute. Rather, a kind of inner virtuosity is needed here, as the playing techniques used in the piece demand that the performer have great tonal sensibility and discipline. The rhythm of the glissandos must be maintained exactly: the fully notated glissando steps shall not become "blurred" but played slightly pronounced. Even between the phrasing slurs, the musical tension shall not get lost. The fingerings were in most cases chosen deliberately, so as to define the color of the respective sound. The quarter tones to be sung must be intoned with accuracy. "...through the mirror into a new light..." is dedicated to the flutist Rudolf Dobler. Included are two pages of written instructions.
