THE FLYING TRAPEZE
Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, F Horn, Bassoon
"The Flying Trapeze" is a piece that deals with the fear of falling. The dysfunction in maintaining balance, the space and motion discomfort and the dizziness caused by heights, are explored through a playful organization of musical motives and recurring cluster harmonies.
This piece is intended as a homage to Igor Stravinsky and Alfred Schnittke.
