Tya is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning "earth" or "flowering time". It was composed in 1984 while I was studying in Berlin with Isang Yun and Witold Szalonek. Tya is a serial work and typical of the works I was composing at that time is higly dramatic with intense and sudden changes of dynamic and colour.
Instrumentation: Flute (doubling piccolo), oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, tenor trombone, bass trombone, percussion (2 players), strings (18.104.22.168).
