Bamburria by Wil Offermans

Score and parts

Duration: 7-8 min.

Instrumentation: solo flute, 5 flutes, bass flute (or C-flute)

This piece was inspired by a composition with the same title which Offermans composed for the Nakagawa Bamboo Orchestra in Fukuoka, Japan.  This ensemble consists entirely of instruments made out of bamboo.  The main element in the music is the fascinating Spanish flamenco rhythm–the buleria.  Basically, the buleria is a rhythm in 12 beats with the counting starting, not on the 1st, but on the 11th beat, and accented on the 12th, 3rd, 6th, 8th and 10th beats.

– In the central part, the flutists put their flute aside and perform the Spanish flamenco rhythm of 'buleria' by clapping the hands while one flutist performs the flute solo.
– Bamburia can also be performed by 6 flutists (1 flutist also performs the flute solo); by 7 flutists as mentioned or by any larger size of flute ensemble by doubling the scores.

Program notes preface the score.
