Program Note

In Drawings my starting point of what the piece would be about and where it would propel from was the very low airy sounds of the alto flute. These airy sounds and the hypnotic chords heard from the piano below is the core idea of the work. This idea is spiritual, but for me it does not contain the searching found in some of my spiritual ideas in other works. Here it is patient, resting.. Of course, this core idea is then contrasted in the extremes with two kinds of ideas: piercing piccolo sounds with sudden high piano strikes; and passionately (the way I see it) flowing sections of the normal flute with fluid piano parts. Throughout the piece the three flutes are locked to their above sections and sounds. These sections often alternate their first heard order. Different expressions of the three ideas is presented at times, though their origin and purpose remain the same.
– Kamran Ince

The "low, airy sounds of the alto flute" inspired Drawings, commissioned by Marie Sander in 2001. She premiered the work with pianist Philip Bush, in May 2003 in Madison, Wisconsin. An alto flute gesture wafts gently at the outset, adrift above lush Impressionist chords. A high, clanging ostinato barges in, prompting an antic piccolo twittering — a miniature scherzo of sorts — before a new version of the opening material begins and develops a little. Sander moves on to C-flute, to play an inversion of the alto flute theme over an ecstatic reworking of the Impressionist chords in sparkling arpeggios. Near the end, Ince quotes his own Arches, one of his most transcendent works.
