Composer : Eva-Maria Houben. Performer : Anne Horstmann, flute. 'Calme, silence, solitude' for piccolo solo, 'quelques riens' for mauritius flute and 'moments musicaux' for bass flute constitute a trilogy, composed by Eva-Maria Houben for flutist Anne Horstmann. They may also be performed individually. The mauritius flute is a traverse flute made of speckled bamboo. Its seven holes are burned into the wood. The scores of this trilogy contain the note: 'Hector Berlioz abgehort' ('upon listening to Hector Berlioz'). The titles allude to French composer Hector Berlioz: one of the first to radically expand the listening space by his reference to nearly nothing ('Presque rien'). 'Calme, silence, solitude' is a quotation form one of his scores. 'Jubilatio' for mauritius flute (2007) is a kind of wordless singing that could go on and on without ending : singing to oneself.'
