CONCERTPIECE IN D FOR FLUTES
3 (3= Picc). 2. 3(3= B.Cl.). 3(3= Cbsson). / 4. 3. 3. 1. / 3 Perc. Timp. Kbd. / strings
The piece is dedicated to K. B. Sebon who premiered the piece in Zagreb, on MAY 12 1988 with Zagreb Symphony Orchestra RTZ and conductor Uroš Lajovic
The concerto is not following the traditional form, it uses several condensed excerpts from the well of traditional instrumental concerto practice instead.
The focal point is the note D - serving as the basis for the enchained lines of intervals. These lines follow the development of music motives, melodies and harmonies, thus setting the epicenter for several tonal gravitation fields
The intervals are emerging as concentric circles, initiating chromatic glissando sketches /D-C sharp-C-B-B flat... or D-E flat.../ and reaffirming diatonic scale toward the end. Basic folk patterns can be heard through interval metamorphosis or association… The soloist uses the whole arsenal of flutes to respond, comment, ornament and develop musical ideas with a varied palette of sounds
