The composer originally intended to model this new work on her favourite flute piece, Bachs Second Suite, and started to write an Overture. Sensing great energy from this beautiful medium, though, she soon found that she had written over ten minutes worth of continuous music for the opening movement alone. She then decided to separate this music into five shorter sections, The Prelude, Waltz macabre, Aria, Menuet sauvage and Sicilienne/Berceuse.
