...wie zwei Flöten süß - (2017)    

for two flutes

Silvia Rozas Ramallal und Jonas Kämper gewidmet


A little suite of four movements is written after hearing two students from the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin playing on Friedrichstrasse yesterday on a springtime afternoon. The suite was composed with a quote in mind about two flutes:  "Hören Vögel, wie zwei Flöten süß / Ihre Sprache sprechen."  Klabund, from the collection, "Chinesische Gedichte."


The first movement is a short ABA form.




The second in the relative minor is a canon as the flutes hint at the chirping and cooing of birds, referencing the quote from Klabund.



The third is scherzo-like, as the harmonic regions shift lightly.



The last is a fugue in duple and then triple meter.



4 pages, circa 5' 00" - an MP3 demo is here:
