Four Pieces (Flute Alone)
Four Pieces (Flute Alone) by Victoria Borisova-Ollas, Published by Universal Edition.
Four Pieces for Flute solo were written upon a request from UE for the volume Flute Project, where five composers were supposed to collaborate with five well-known Flute players. Victoria Borisova-Ollas collaborated with Emmanuel Pahud. He sent a feed-back on the written music, which was very much appreciated. There are no special stories behind the titles of these 4 pieces. The titles of the Four Pieces are supposed to trigger the imagination of (young) players and their audience. The most often asked-for piece is Elegy: It has a more melodic character than the rest of the works, which are of more virtuoso character.
