Prometheus for Flutes

(2014) ...for flute quartet

Premiered on the 26th of July 2014 at 2ª Academia de Flauta de Verão in Escola Superior de Música e das Artes do Espectáculo, Portugal.

Programme notes: "Prometheus for Flutes was born out of my piece Prometheus for woodwind quintet, named after the mystic chord of Alexander Scriabin which I use as harmonic and melodic material. I developed a motif among all instruments creating phase "games" of rhythm between each instrument, leading to a section of suspended chords and small solos between each other (almost like a dialogue). After that section, the same motif appears again but, instead of being developed, it retrogrades and disintegrates until the end...

1st Prize (Category A: Quartet) at the 1st Composition Competition for Flutes of the 2nd Flute Summer Academy.

Written in 2014 as part of the composition portfolio of my first year (1º) of undergraduate at the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa.

Notas de programa: “Prometheus for Flutes” nasce a partir de outra peça minha “Prometheus” para quinteto de sopros (Flauta, Oboé, Clarinete em Síb, Fagote e Trompa em Fá).
Dei-lhe esse nome porque a peça é composta com base no acorde místico de A. Scriabin como material harmónico e melódico.
Procurei desenvolver um motivo entre todos os intrumentos criando “jogos” de desfazamento de ritmo entre cada um levando a uma secção de acordes suspensos e pequenos solos entre cada instrumento (quase como um diálogo).
Após essa secção, volta-se a ouvir o mesmo motivo (que aparece no início da peça) mas em vez do seu desenvolvimento, dá-se o seu retrocesso e desintegração até o final…”

1º Prémio (Categoria A: Quarteto) no 1º Concurso de Composição para Flautas da 2ª Academia de Flauta de Verão.

Escrita em 2014 como parte do meu portefólio de composição do meu primeiro (1º) ano de Licenciatura em Música - Composição na Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa.
