"delicate, lovely solo Even by Moonlight I have no Peace can can stand alone as a showcase piece for the instrument"
George Grella, New York Classical Review read more....

In Bulgakov's novel, The Master and Margarita, the phrase above occurs several times, voiced by different characters, acting as a motive, in compositional terms. The novel seems to me to be close to the paintings of Chagall, luminous, drawing on folklore, savagely ironic and violent yet tender and beautiful in equal measure. The two- part piece for alto flute reflects this aspect of the writing that I found unusual and engrossing.

The piece was composed for the American flautist, Linda DiMartino Wetherill and is dedicated to her 'luminous' playing.

Watch the premiere performance by Linda DiMartino Wetherill here.
