About the album
This CD presents an anthology of pieces composed for flute by Daniele Lombardi (lives in Florence, Italy) between 1972 and 2003. The title, Mazes, represents the fil rouge which runs through the pieces included in the CD. The turf mazes were, after all, labyrinths which provided entertainment in medieval Britain: convoluted paths carved into level areas of short grass, turf or lawn and located in popular meeting places or where games and celebrations were traditionally held.
The imaginative elegance of Daniele Lombardi’s graphic notations stimulates the performer’s creativity by offering him the opportunity to give a rendering which, when released, flows freely and unconditioned. The scores are devoid of traditional notation and the mixture of musical parameters is achieved solely by the graphics and their characteristics.

They have dedicated many works to him that he then premiered.
