The Story of the two Bread Crumbs

solo flutist and chopping board


Once having to compose a piece for flute solo, I was completely stumped. Suddenly one day, while cutting some bread, two little bread crumbs flew to the side. Looking at them I started imagining their life story. They come into existence, meet while dancing a twisted tango, they get to know each other better… until they have a row late into their long relationship. At which point I tapped them with my finger and ate them, and rushed to compose The Story of the Two Bread Crumbs!

Composed in 2008, revised 2018 - commissioned and premiered by Felix Haller in Switzerland, revised version premiered by the composer at NFA Orlando, USA
