For Solo Flute
Duration: 5 mins approx.
Arabesque was composed for flutist Conrad Marshall as part of Psappha Ensemble’s Composing for… scheme for young composers. The work is often rather ornate and virtuosic and, whilst composing it, I had in mind both the flute’s association with the ancient world and a walk that my wife and I took in the Giardino di Boboli in Florence.
