«High Mountains of Music» Op.8

Flute and Piano

In the lyric duet for Flute and Piano, «High Mountains of Music» Op.8 (1992), «Polar Nights» are like icy fairytales. Imagine being in a dark, yet starry, frozen landscape — so quiet that the elements become very tangible. You can hear the silence, see the invisible mood and smell the odourless ice crystals! You are frozen in time. «Northern Lights», the Aurora Borealis, is erratic, seductive and hypnotic. She lures you in, invites you to stare at her, only to disappear as quickly as she materialised.
