Tandem oblique

L’Air du Large – Contemporary pièces for flute and piano. Livre-CD Motus M 298004. Coll MotusAujourd’hui.  1998. (5 Diapason).

Tandem oblique, here is a work that is aptly named, where flute and piano accompany and confront each other on a road that is as rugged as it is unpredictable. By reusing fragments from the piece Six mélodies for soprano and piano, the composer says he wants to substitute “the accompanied melody“ of the previous work with the idea of a “concertant duo”. The writing, the phrasing, the links are neat. There are many changes of tempos in order to fine-tune the profiles of the frenzied patterns that the two protagonists link together. The piece unfolds itself on a constantly renewed course, revealing little by little the cool landscapes, the hills and valleys, the waterfalls and the streams: surprising poetic images stemming from this hedonistic fantasy.
