One sound, opus 90 : quintet for flute and strings, op. 90 / Andrew Schultz.
Also known as: Quintet for flute and strings, op. 90
by Andrew Schultz (2012)
One Sound - Quintet for flute and strings is a one movement work written over the summer of 2011-12 and commissioned by the Australia Ensemble. The work's title has no precise meaning but simply refers to the opening unison note. The note splits into a fifth, a downward scale and then a rising sixth. Everything spills out from this single melodic cell - the endless possibilities of a cell dividing and growing but always keeping the plan of the original cell. The pattern of the small scale and the large are ideally one and the same. The shape of the work is in three large sections - a structure that recalls an earlier work of mine, Endling for orchestra.
