Ritual for a smiling flower
The ritual character of the music is imposed due to frequent repetitions, in which subtle dynamizations of the discourse appear, but also due to elements of instrumental theater. Strong rhythmic patterns characterize the first and last section of the piece, the middle part favoring melodic elements with an archaic, ancestral touch. Throughout the piece, vocalization and phonemes of an imaginary language are used.
Ritual for a smiling flower was dedicated to Maria Gyuris. It was performed for the first time by the children’s choir from Ion Vidu National Art College, conducted by Maria Gyuris at the VOX MUNDI International Festival from Timisoara, on May 23, 2019.
