Gkougkousoudis: Paradromes III / Kolb: Trois pièces pittoresques/ Shang: Yin
– Performance scores –
The new publications of Schott Music for flute and piano include the works of three laureates of the Harald Genzmer Composition Competition 2016. They are ideal for performances at concerts and competitions like Jugend musiziert.
The young Greek composer Theodoros Gkougkousoudis was awarded the third prize for Paradromes III in which he uses modern playing techniques in the flute part as well as in the piano part.
Trois pièces pittoresques by the pianist Oliver Kolb from Darmstadt is written entirely in French timbres. Its main features are the ease and joy of playing for the performers.
Peilei Shang won the first prize with her composition Yin: Reminiscent of traditional Chinese music, Yin creates an individual and expressive atmosphere by means of sound effects embedded unobtrusively in the overall context. Special techniques are used in the flute and piano parts to produce the sound of the Chinese traditional instruments xiao, a kind of bamboo flute, and qin, a plucked instrument.
