New Millennium Memo for flute solo
H. Sollberger: New Millennium Memo for flute solo was written in 2000. It was premiered at Oberlin College by Claire Chase in 2000. The composition reflects Harvey Sollberger's search for musical substance can be found in a solo piece for flute. "This music, each piece, has the substance of a world. I'm amazed to find more and more in less and less. I simply call it Smallness".
