Written in 1968
For unaccompanied flute.
TAKSIM for flute was composed in 1968 and is based on an oriental maqam. The serial method is employed, although without frequent transitions between registers, so that there is not too much of a break with oriental musical conception. The work is constructed out of two main elements; the first develops while the second crystallises.
TAKSIM was first performed in 1968 by the composer.
