Donatoni, F

Franco Donatoni s Fili is a 13-minute set of variations for flute and piano. It is an example of Donatoni's use of pre-determined directions for handling the basic musical material, which is stated at the beginning of the work. Thereafter, what happens is nearly entirely the result of the automatic application of specific rules for permutation of the music. Applied to the opening idea, this process creates the first variation. Since this is a chained set of variations, permutations are similarly applied to the resulting variations to create the next variation.

The rules for handling musical material are so devised that little by little the flute takes a more dominant part in the duet of two players until at the end it has elaborate runs and high passages that challenge the limits of the instrument's virtuosity.
