Aqua and Ventus for Flute Quartet by Anze Rozman
Scored for 4 C Flutes with Flute 1 and 2 doubling on Piccolo for “Ventus”
Aqua and Ventus was composed by Slovenian composer Anže Rozman for the Slovenian flute quartet, Traverso. Aqua, for four C flutes, evokes images of raindrops and water amidst shifting meters and aleatoric passages. In Ventus, the first two players switch to piccolo to conjure up the wind in this virtuosic movement.
