Fliegen, Op12 for Flute Solo by Emely Zobel
German composer Emely Zobel (1964-1996)
One page, in manuscript….
The poles of life become more clear…I send you the clouds and the wind of the south, the taste of café au lait and the paws of the cats strolling along the walls of this little town. I bought a record by J. Brel second hand… My red woman, the lively one with the spider fingers who lives in me and was always hidden, is a sibling of him …I did love this crazy life.“
E. Zobel, 7.Aug. 1996, South of France (taken from a letter which was written on the back of Fliegen.)
