Dora Pejačević: “Chanson sans parole (op. 5)” Arrangement for 3 flutes and alto flute by Yuki Hasegawa
Dora Pejačević, born in Budapest in 1885 and died in Munich in 1923, was a composer of the Croatian noble family.
This is one of the fascinating collection of her works that allow for deep expression through the use of harmony that sometimes pushes the limits towards her later years, as is typical around the beginning of the 20th century (This early work is still quite simple).
The arrangement for flute quartet was commissioned by the Japan Croatia Music Society and was completed in July 2021, and premiered in Tokyo on 6 August by the "Flute Quartet Tsutsu-uraura”. The recording/Youtube is by Ms. Mari Akimoto (Fl.1), Ms. Natsuki Oba (Alto Fl.), Mr. Atsushi Kawasaki (Fl. 3), Ms. Shiho Shirasaki (Fl. 2).
