Within… by Ian Clarke – solo flute and backing track version [C flute with Bft and open holes, piccolo & alto – advanced]
This is solo flute and backing track version of Within… for 7 flutes. It gives the soloist the main melodic lines from the original 7 flutes work. The bass solo is done of the alto to make instrument changes practical and the piece more accessible. A piccolo is also required as is a Bft concert flute with open holes. See the ensemble version for further notes.
The premiere of this work was made in this version by the composer. The backing track parts are played by Ian. The original album version was multi-tracked. This was part of the original creative process.
