Introduction: RONDO OSCURO was composed in September 2003 for Klaus Rester and concert program 'Flute Mystique'. A naive rondo theme leads to a puzzling foreignness. The soloist is confronted with the sound transmission (or flute ensemble) which demand rhythmical freedom.
Dedication: Dedicated to Klaus Rester
Additional remarks: The sound transmission is played on a CD on which the 7 flute parts are recorded.
