4 miniature per 4 strumenti a fiato (2014) (score & parts) - FL/CL/BSN/HN
Composer: Capogrosso, Fabio Massimo
Publisher: Imagine Music
for flute, clarinet, bassoon, and horn
by Fabio Massimo Capogrosso (b. 1984) - Italian composer
From the composer:
When I started writing this piece I did not follow an extra-musical subject, no story inspired this work. I have simply tried to write a composition that would befit the timbre and expressiveness of this instrumental ensemble. The use of counterpoint characterizes all four movements; In this regard it is no coincidence that the last is a fugue: the ultimate expression of this compositional technique.
There are also other elements: the lyricism that characterizes the third movement, the rhythmic variety and dynamics that are fundamental elements of the second, and the fairytale setting in which it takes place in the first movement.
