Bulgarian piano prodigy Lora Al-Ahmad traveled to New York City in her teens to further her training, and while at the Mannes School began studying composition with Lowell Liebermann. Among the first fruit of her fascinating talents is TWO SKAZKAS for solo Flute. Skazka is a Russian word for story, with a particular connotation of fantasy-inspired fairy tales. Al-Ahmad's untitled skazkas enchant, leaving the actual stories to our own imaginations. TWO SKAZKAS quickly captured the imagination of Stefán Höskuldsson (Principal Flute of the Chicago Symphony) who has performed the work internationally.
