Tunes for a lizard (2021)
for oboe (or flute)
It used to be Ravel's habit to whistle tunes for lizards in his garden. Actually, these were no clearly defined tunes but randomly picked notes. I wrote these 'loose ends' that could possibly have sounded like these ' tunes '.
Who knows, some of these musical hunchess might even have found their way into some of his compositions, so
I therefore put in motives, referring to some.
This piece could be also played on a flute. In this case, a headjoint will serve very well.
duration appr.. 3' 30" minutes.
