Programme Notes

This work was commissioned by Ars Musica Australis, and was extensively revised for premiere performance and this recording by Claire Edwardes in 2010. Flash is a very fast, virtuosic showpiece, continually changing between regular sets of repeated notes and arpeggios, and more variable explosions across the instrument. Hints of singing melodies briefly emerge, but only to be put back in their place by the ADHD rhythmic figures.
