Description

Flutetics is a jazz-based exploration of flute technique in ten imaginative episodes which stretch the player's skill and concentration to the limit, but also allow plenty of scope for expressivity.

After opening with a busy jazz ballad, double-tonguing hots up the tempo to launch a dizzying duet section, where virtuosic grace notes evoke the presence of an imaginary second player. Atmospheric flutter-tonguing is then blown apart by some wicked growling and spit-tonguing in a scary but exhilarating section influenced by Ian Anderson's "Jethro Tull". The return of the main theme provides a lyrical interlude before a final and dramatic coda, culminating in a "vicious" final four bars. Phew!!
