Hans-Gunther Allers (b.1937)
"...an original composition for five flutes that is cheerful throughout. The 'Toccatina' begins right away with a clear-cut rhythmical motif and virtuoso passages, while the 'Notturno'...is rather reserved and expressive in character. In the third piece, 'Serenata', the dissonant tones that are adjunct to the triads create a barrel-organ-like sound. The 'Rezitativo'..., with its solo-tutti dialog, forms a transition to the cheerful and capricious 'Rondino..., which is a rhythmical final movement characterized throughout by constant canges of meter." -from the Preface by the composer.
