Programme Notes

'Darker Still' explores the outer edges: the dark and the bright sides of the flute’s voice, lyricism and brutality, movement and stillness, the clear and the muffled, song and silence, are set against each other. As the piece progresses the lights are snuffed out and shadows creep in, leaving the flute singing broken tunes in the dark. ‘Darker Still’ starts with a bang and ends with a whisper. 'Darker Still' was commissioned jointly by the BBC and the Royal Philharmonic Society as part of Radio 3's New Generation Artists Scheme.
