Sur "Sur la flute..." is articulated around the idea of 'Mozart' or, even better 'Mozartness'.  It is based on a previous work for solo flute ( Sur la flûte travèrsiere) which includes as borrowed material "Wie stark is nicht dein Zauberton" , a Tamino aria in the second act of The Magic Flute. Although the reminiscence of Mozart might not be immediately perceivable, it informs the pacing, the treatment of the motives and the general humor of the piece.
