About the piece

I believe one of the most key elements of music is energy. I am drawn to powerful, groovy, and rhythmic music, balanced with virtuosity, and the ever-accelerating wild wind sound of the flute soloist. The three „F’s” from the title On Fever for solo flute imply the feverish atmosphere of the entire work. I have used various methods for rhythmic treatment inherited from diverse and different musical influences, and couple this with the potential of new grooves.
