Triandafila – Duo for Horn and Flute by Barbara Heller
Includes 2 scores
Triandafila, the “thirty petalled rose” has been commissioned by Ada Gentile for flutist Carin Levine and horn-player Urla Kahl, for the 18th Festival di Musica Contemporanea “Noevi Spazi Musicali” in Rome, 1997. Triandafila is an imaginative composition with insisting repetitions, simple intervals – preferably the fifth – rhythmic pulsations and ever-returning points of rest. Traditional notation.
