During the Covid -19 pandemic the huge amount of group activities that sustain thousands of players had to be suspended. Once a few restrictions started to ease, very small groups could meet outside. Four flutes were to have a rehearsal outdoors and requested some music, which I produced for them. The three pieces are quite diverse with different instrumentations and up to this point have not been played indoors. They are designed to give each player equally interesting material to play and have a generally pastoral feel.
