In memoriam Liana Alexandra (2011) for flute and two gongs was composed in memory of the Romanian composer Liana Alexandra (1947–2011). The work explores a lyric and ceremonial atmosphere. After the midpoint, an original melody slightly reminiscent of Romanian folk music (which has been hinted at from the start) is presented in full.

I had known and admired Alexandra’s music for a number of years (and had performed one of her works for organ), but alas only came into personal contact with her several months before her untimely death.
