Franchir l’horizon

concertino pour flûte et cinq instruments

In this concertino, the soloist alternatively plays the flute, the piccolo and the alto flute ; the piccolo extends towards the high register the brightness and the velocity of the flute ; the alto flute explores the expressive density of its lower register.

The piece is composed of 3 successive parts ; the first one soars in the bright morning light. The second part sets a more intimate atmosphere evolving towards a secret pain. Softened colours. The initial atmosphere comes back in the third part in a play of chiaroscuro : the music pretends to ignore the previous episode, its shadows, its restlessness, and once again rises towards the bright light, as in a desperate gesture.

The title recalls this impossible quest : writing is always, in some way, an attempt to “cross the horizon”.
