Commissioned by the Aeolian Chamber Players of Bowdoin College in 1966, Junctures explores a wide range of instrumental relationships, from strict unisons to loosely-controlled solo passages. Flutist Harvey Sollberger says: “Davidovsky’s music shows him as the creator of delicately jeweled, precise structures that function with no waste motion or superfluity–exemplified in Junctures in its economy (consider both its brevity and what is achieved within the ‘limitation’ of working with three treble instruments) as well as in its fineness of styling.” Recording originally released on Nonesuch HB-73028 (“20th Century Flute Music”) by Sollberger, Allen Blustine (cl) and Jeanne Benjamin (vn)
