|Excursions for flute, V.116
Excursions is a set of seven one-minute miniatures for unaccompanied flute which illustrate the compositional process by all starting identically, with one set of notes. This simple gesture, which is always the same in register, pitch, rhythm and tempo, leads to seven very different solos, but each are also completely derived from the harmonies, intervals, and contours implied by the germ-set.
Of moderate to advanced difficulty, Excursions can be a valuable tool in teaching character and interpretation, but also stands on its own merits as a concert solo programmable in almost any recital.
