Maya for Two Flutes - Ian Clarke

A beautifully dreamy and accessible piece using a few note bends. A good double-tonguing workout for each part with both lines sharing the soaring melody. Apart from the expressive use of open holes the parts proceed with alternating arching melodies and bubbling semi-quaver passages.

The title ‘maya’ is in reference to the meaning ‘illusion’ as opposed to the South American civilisation. Based on an early work ‘Passage’ 1986 (Clarke/Hicks/Painter) it was rewritten & arranged by Ian Clarke in its current form in 2000 with first publication in 2001.
