In 1913, French composer Claude Debussy revolutionised flute music with his short piece for solo orchestral flute Syrinx (originally called Flûte de Pan). Pan Dreaming is a homage to Debussy's piece, conceived for the same richly-voiced late nineteenth century flute that Debussy wrote for. In classical Greek myth, Syrinx was a nymph who was turned into a reed when being pursued by Pan, the god of nature. When the reed was cut and blown, a flute was created, and many depictions of Pan show him playing a flute of some kind.
