Composer’s notes

The main concern for this piece was to compose three short themes for flute that provide enough freedom for the musician to also improvise. For that reason, any performer playing this piece should be familiar with improvisation. drei kurze momente is aiming at making three statements in a very short time while keeping the balance between notation and improvisation. They are melodies and simple rhythms which can become sophisticated and even crazy – all according to the musicians sentiment at the performance.
