Here's my latest composition, and probably my last one before I start my masters degree! I wrote it for a newly formed flute quartet at uni. I'm really happy with how most of it sounds overall, and I got a lot of productive harmonic experimentation in there. My main worries are whether the structure works overall as a piece, and in particular there's one transition (bars 115-123) that I couldn't figure out how to do right, it just always sounds kind of clumsy and contrived to my ears despite going through a few revisions. Score is in C for the purposes of this site. I'm waiting to hear back on one minor thing before I clean up the parts and send it to them.
This composition was created in 2004 for here presented quartet. So far it is quite successful: performances in Slovenia, Croatia, Belgium, USA, New Zealand; published by ALRY Publications and won a prize by National (American) Flute Association in 2014 as the best flute ensemble piece published in USA. I can't complain at all When composed, I also considered it as one of my finest chamber composition. It was pretty bold for me back then, today I'd probably try something even more daring. The title refers to yearn for something that seems impossible to reach but eventually it happens!
