Program Note
Crystal (2004) for flute, alto flute and orchestra from Tell My Fortune features the flute and alto flute in a haunting duet of extended flute techniques such as fluttering and bending of notes. The strings provide rhythmic counterpoint, while two percussionists play tuned crystal glasses and wind chimes.
