Flute and piano
Duration: 6′
Hunt Edition

At the time of writing Eleven, the troubles in Kosovo were unfolding at a rapid and heart-breaking pace and I was haunted by the thought of what happens to a culture, its inevitable fragmentation, when the savagery of war takes hold. Eleven means ‘alive’ in Hungarian and I thought of the harp (or the piano) as a cimbalom accompaniment and dedicated it to all those in danger of losing their cultural identity, in the hope that they can somehow keep their voice ‘alive’.
