The word Arguro is derived from an Indo-European word and can be translated as silver or generally a shining metal. It can be also related to the Sanskrit word Arjuna meaning light. The title refers to the material that modern flutes are most commonly made from. Silver itself has the highest electrical conductivity of any element, therefore the word seems to perfectly reflect the nature of the work. Arguro was commissioned by the Society of Composers, Inc, and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
