Using sounds to animate thoughts - indeed to "make them dance" - is one of Violeta Dinescu's fundamental creative motivations. "For me, it is very important that I am moved by music and that I can use music to move others. Music can release something that is out of my control." Violeta Dinescu's works for solo flute open up a "wonderland" of sounds. The cycle "Aus dem Tagebuch" is a striking example of this. Along with the five "Blicke" (Glimpses) for two to nine flutes, the five "diary entries" are interspersed among the other works on this release to create a dramaturgical sequence. What these miniatures have in common is an expressive character that is strongly metaphorical and associative, able to translate the turbulent mood of the diary entries into clear mental images. The gestural and mimicking aspects are underscored by experimental sounds and unorthodox playing techniques such as flutter tongue, breath noises, overblown harmonics, multiphonics, glissandos, various kinds of vibrato, and pitchless sounds. Just as the five "diary entries" are, in Dinescu's words, "little excursions into the world of the soul," the "glimpses" allow us a similar view - the musical material of both pieces is closely related. However, while the diary entries place the "world of the soul" under a magnifying glass, the glimpses look at this world from the "distance of memory.".
