program note
In Arcana, for solo flute and recorded sound, the ghostly voice of the theremin shadows the melancholy and lyrical solo flute through a dark soundscape. Written in Brooklyn, NY in 2004, Arcana was commissioned by Itzhak and Toby Perlman for the 21st birthday of their daughter, flutist Ariella Perlman. Ariella performed the premiere at Rice University in Houston on April 1st, 2006. Arcana is now frequently performed around the world.
