Composer: Emanuel Vahl
Instrumentation: 2 Flutes, Piano
Skill Level: Intermediate-Advanced


This is a bold new work for two flutes and piano, in a modern Russian style. The composer characterises the movements as follows:

1st movement – Dramatic, expresses the ‘Russian fate’

2nd movement – A dance. Light, and a bit ‘peppery’

3rd movement – A rustic Russian view

4th movement – Belief in the great power of the Russian nation.


Using an extended tonal language and exciting rhythmic interplay, this piece creates a variety of moods and atmospheres for the players. Particularly charming is the third movement, a pastoral scene for the two flutes alone.
