World Premiere of Johannes X. Schachtner’s “tangentino” for Flute and Electric Guitar

The Duo Arrabal, consisting of Karin Scholz (guitar) and Thomas Richter (flute), will present the world premiere of “tangentino” for flute and electric guitar by Johannes X. Schachtner on 21 October 2012 in Schwandorf.

This new work by the composer-conductor, born in Gräfelfing, is part of a matinee concert at the Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus, organised in cooperation with the international artists’ house Villa Concordia in Bamberg.

Johannes X. Schachtner comments on his work as follows:

“When the Duo Arrabal requested a small addition to their repertoire from me for the duo combination of flute and electric guitar, I was especially fascinated by the sonic proximity of flute sounds and guitar harmonics. In order to lend these 'flute tones' more presence, I decided in favour of an electric guitar amplified with resonance.
Out of three guitar harmonics lying a distance of a quarter-tone from each other, there arises a sonic space out of which circling, dancing and arabesque-like flute figures and cascades stand out.”
