Simplicity : flute solo
by Rhonda Berry (2009)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
This piece was written to be performed at seven selected places during a two kilometer walk in the countryside near Kalv, a small town in Sweden, southwest of Gothenberg. The seven short pieces for solo instrument were entitled Slowness, Sand, Silence, Simplicity, Sharing, Spirituality,
The aim was to get away from the noise and bustle of the cities to a place of quietness where we can listen to the sounds around us. The title "Simplicity" explains the piece. People from the surrounding area were invited to the Festival and music for this was written by composers from different countries.
Duration: 3 min.
First performance: by Anna Svensdotter — 15 Aug 09. Outdoors at Kalv, Sweden as part of the 2009 Kalv Festival
Speaking personally, my reasons for submitting "Simplicity" for the Kalv Festival was because my father's family had come from Sweden, my grandfather having lived on the island of Orust, adjacent to the west coast town of Uddevalla.
