Year of composition
This piece is inspired in the traditional bamboo flutes of the oriental countries. In the prelude, the melody of the first theme uses sounds that remind us of these flutes. The sounds used are inspired in the musical language of Toru Takemitsu, since this composition was started in 2016 and rewritten finally in 2021, coinciding with the 20th and 25th anniversaries of his death, respectively. Following this, the variations are written in the style of an “étude de salon”, following the tradition of romantic composers such as Donjon, in this case exploring the full extension of the flute.
