Lamentations (2005)

Duration: ca. 8′
Instrumentation: solo flute

Lamentations is a solo flute piece composed for my friend Tina Tso. It is written in a kind of refrain form, with the opening lyrical and desolate material gradually rising in pitch over the course of the whole piece, interrupted by  bursts of virtuosity.
