Written for the composition tutor at the 1985 Cambridge Music School, John Elmsly, Slides 5 received its first performance in 1987 at a University of Auckland concert. The combination here is of baroque flute with crotales (tuned antique cymbals). The pitch range here is much narrower than with a conventional flute. One particular feature of the music is a fingered tremolo while a single pitch is held, thereby causing microtonal fluctuations in the pitch of that note.
Written for John Elmsly
