Composed by Nickos Harizanos (2017)
for Solo Alto Flute
Published by Tetractys Publishing
This work is dedicated to Carla Rees and makes use of the expressive capabilities of the microtones available on her Kingma System alto flute. The piece was premiered in Athens and recorded at the CMRC studio in autumn 2017.
Although written for a Kingma System alto flute, this piece may also be played on any other alto flute, but care should be taken with intonation of the quartones. The piece is to be played freely with a wide range of expression. The lines in the score relate to fluctuations in pitch on the long notes; these should be achieved via a combination of variable speeds and amplitudes of vibrato, as well as pitch bends and fingered glissandi.
