The piece is inspired by idea of evocation – the act of calling or summoning in Western mystery tradition, but also as the creation of New by bringing into the mind collective and individual memories and imagination. Melismatically coloured and based on the principles of imitation with pentatonic and modal elements, the theme evokes the sounds of the past – especially the medieval times, when the mysticism and alchemy flourished. The flute has from the mythical stories to the present days been a symbol of a „magical“ instrument. Throughout the piece, the evocation passes through six variation of different ideas and characters, while not losing the initial guideline. The circle is closing in Coda which instrospectively looks at the beginning and vanishes in triple pianissimo of the last chord. The composition is commissioned and dedicated to Zagreb Flute Ensemble who gave it’s premiere in Zagreb (Croatia) on November 24th 2013.
