Carla Rees - Zxyros Miniatures

Zyxros Miniatures (1999) – Carla Rees (b.1976)

These three short movements for flute (doubling alto flute) and harp were composed in 1999 for the Zxyros Duo (Carla Rees, flute and Rebecca Smith, harp).

In composing these pieces, my aim was to create a set of short, appealing movements, which could be easily programmed with the standard repertoire for flute and harp, whilst still providing the interest of dissonant harmony and a contemporary approach to the use of the instruments.
