Akai tonbo (red dragonfly) [2003 rev. 2011]

This short piece for solo flute is inspired by a painting by Japanese artist Takahashi Biho (born in 1873) named “Dragonfly and Lotus”. The composition makes use of heterophony as a way to evoke poetically the fly and subtil buzz made by this fascinating insect.

For scores request, please contact the composer.
