Instruments: 4 or more flutes, 2 piccolo

During my summerschool at the Musik Akademie Marktoberdorf 2018, I met a great group of flute players. (They performed a piece for piccolo’s, and we concluded after that, that the es-clarinet is not such a horrible instrument after all.) It seemed to me that there would be much more possible with flutes and piccolo’s, so I wrote ‘Pubermeisjes’ (Girls in puberty) . The giggling, gossiping and sadness of girls together in school-toilets, inspired me to write this piece.
