Argos for Flute Alone, by Salvador Espasa. Roberto Álvarez, Flute
In the Greek mythology Argos was a one hundred-eyed giant. After an encounter with Io, Zeus transformed his lover, Io, into a heifer to avoid the suspicion of his wife, Hera. Argos became the guardian of this heifer, which brought the anger of Zeus. Hermes, Zeus' son, made Argos fall completely asleep by playing a magic melody with his flute. Then he murdered him while he was sleeping. Afterwards, Hera took his eyes to embellish the tail of her sacred bird, the peacock.
