Programme Note
Daniel Catán Encantamiento (flute and harp) (1989)
Catán composed Encantamiento after living in Japan for two years. The work draws inspiration from the Shakuhachi, a bamboo flute used throughout the country in Zen Buddhist meditation, folk music, jazz, and other traditional and modern contexts. Shakuhachis have an extremely versatile ability for variation. Different fingerings, embouchures, and breath speed can produce notes of the same pitch, but with subtle or dramatic differences in tone color. It is interesting to note that Catán’s treatment of the flute in this work is similar to that in his well-loved opera, La Hija de Rappaccini (Rappaccini’s Daughter)
