|composer's notes:||Following an energetic opening, the flute in Movement 1 states a dancing melody, which is interrupted by quirky, unexpected outbursts. This melody becomes more lyrical and flowing as the movement progresses, leading into a cadenza filled with many percussive flute techniques and sounds. Movement 2 begins mysteriously, with a lilting figure in the strings, and a background of bells. An ominous beat appears in the bass drum and contrabass, followed by a plaintive flute melody which, with the use of delay effects, joins the orchestra in a swirl of sound. Movement 3 begins with light pizzicatos and percussion textures overlaid with an energetic flute melody. The opening dissolves into a more melancholy middle section, which abruptly breaks into an energetic piano figure that builds to the conclusion. —NG|
