Parts and score. The instrumentation varies between two piccoli and two flutes, three flutes and an alto and four flutes.
It's like onomatopoeia, entertaining but not easy to play. We liked it. the first two flutes have to change to Piccolo in several movements (always both of them), the fourth changes to Alto in the other movements. Everybody will need frullato to play this!

Really hard to play and speak. Perhaps speaking is even more difficult than playing. The three languages of the text make it hard to find the right one in time. Very inventive.

Really complicated, even the notation. Every part is full of annotations around the music notation.
Written in December 1968. Ligeti started with the idea to write for a concert like movement for each of the five instruments. During work on this opus it grew and thus there are ten movements now, as after each solo movement there is a ensemble movement.
The last movements ends in a grand pause of ten seconds and with a citation from "Alice in wonderland" by Lewis Caroll.
