The pan flute holds a significant place in Romanian folk music, with Gheorghe Zamfir pioneering flute techniques in the ’80s, elevating it to a concert level worldwide. In the hands of Zamfir, the pan flute becomes an instrument equal to traditional orchestral instruments, offering endless expressive colours and technical capabilities for playing modern music.

Surprisingly, there is a lack of large original compositions for the pan flute. Therefore, writing two original compositions for this instrument and a modern orchestra is a revolutionary and groundbreaking project, providing justice to the pan flute and offering future players a challenging musical and technical work.

Elia Cmiral is best known for his film scores, most natably Ronin which influenced Hans Zimmer’s use of the deduk in his score for Gladiator.

Gheorghe Zamfir met composer Elia Cmiral whilst collaborating on a short film for which he composed the score. Gheorghe played solo on a few tracks.

During this period, their connection deepened, with a shared appreciation for musical aesthetics and a mutual love for emotionally resonant melodies. Their joint understanding continued after the completion of the film, evolving into a cross-continental friendship — Cmiral in Los Angeles, US, and Gheorghe in Bucharest, Romania.
