flute and alto flute
UA: 10/5/1996, VPRO-Radioprogramm, Thies Roorda and Rien de Reede
This piece is a little present for the 70th birthday of Gottfried Michael Koenig. For this occasion six other composer-friends (Karlheinz Essl, Richard Barrett, Burkhardt Söll, Frank Pecquet, Jean Yves Bosseur and Willem Breuker) joined the birthday party with pieces for 2 flutes.
We called our collective ‘suite’: Carnaval Royal (Kings Carnival, Koenig’s Karneval), because all pices are related to one of the parts of Robert Schumann’s “Carnaval”).
