High Art

High Art goes back to my long friendship with Robert Dick - the legendary flutist and composer. I was irritated in 1982 when some critics failed to 'get' my low art, folk-like composition Der Signal, so I wrote some really High Art in order to prove I could do that too.The performance techniques are largely based on Robert Dick's pioneering study The Other Flute: A Performance Manual of Contemporary Techniques (Oxford University Press, 1975) which may be consulted for further information.
