L'Opera per flauto

Sciarrino, S

The L'Opera per Flauto is a collection of Salvatore Sciarrino's major contemporary masterworks for the flute, exploring some of the most intriguing extended techniques (many rarely used outside Sciarrino's ouvre) in the flute repertoire. Sciarrino held a fondness for writing idiomatic music that exploited an instrument's individual tendencies, and this music is no exception; though the music sometimes extends to three staves, multiple difficult techniques at once, and rapid multiphonics, it is explicitly designed to be as readable and playable as possible - unlike Ferneyhough's or Birtwhistle's New Complexity - and explores unusual sonorities, quiet flutterings, and whispering sounds without making a feature of the difficulty. Very strange but very beautiful music.

Sciarrino is also known for his unusual transcriptions of works for solo instruments. His transcription of the Bach Toccata and Fugue in D Minor for solo flute is widely considered one of the most effective and individual transcriptions extant, and also makes use of quiet sonorities and unusual techniques.

This collection is recommended for only the very advanced player.
