Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) — Flötenuhrkomposition 4 (La terza mano) (2016) for organ
“Flötenuhrkompositionen” (2016) is a set of 10 keyboard pieces inspired by the music of the late baroque and classical era composed for the “musical clock” (flute clock): a mechanical clock that included a rank (or more) of organ pipes to play different pieces. While employing characteristic forms and textures similar to the flute clock pieces by Mozart, Haydn, and their contemporaries, these new works employ the Restarting Pitch Space harmony system for a contemporary flavor.
