These three works provide a well balanced programme, and high standards of playing and recording combine to make this a release to be reckoned with. After this, Michael Jarrell’s …un temps de silence… and Matthias Pintscher’s Fpute are a good deal more intense. I mean, really, how can this be?
Dalbavie seems intent on aiming the flute on a trajectory that seeks to reincarnate the Flight of the Bumblebee. Add a Comment Click here to cancel reply. In fact, as the work unfolds, the quizzical nature between the one and the many takes on an ecstatic quality, the flute continuing its endless melody in a quasi-mystical manner, ever quieter and more tranquil. Then the soloist plays some G-D-A-whatevers, echoed by the open strings in the violins — ah, spectralism — at which point I ceased listening.

The trumpet was not muted, and there were no balance problems. There was a quartet for piano, viola, bassoon, and trumpet, about which it was explained that the trumpet it muted throughout because — well, you know, it says to do so in his undergraduate orchestration book.
Jarrell risks over-indulging the defining features of his idiom – fast and febrile at one extreme, quietly whispering at the other.
But there the similarities end. If you are a library, university or other organisation that would be interested in an institutional subscription to Gramophone please click here for further information.
This is indeed profoundly chilly music, constantly on the verge of freezing solid, never thawing into expansiveness.
There was also a large ensemble piece which was audibly a grab-bag of bits of Favourite Twentieth Century Classics a bit of the Ligeti Five Pieces here, a bit of that there. Anonymous March 25, Thank you.

And this drivel is being presented — by leading performers and institutions, some of whom must surely know better — as concerro work by a leading composer? It works because there dalbabie no half-measures: Both eschew the contemporary practice of opting for descriptive names; the bald title Flute Concerto has connotations of its own, of course, but nonetheless suggests that deeply programmatic content is not the order of the day.
I previously encountered his work on a program split with Kurtag!! But each and every time, barely after a few notes have been uttered, the nascent melody is quashed and everything twirls off somewhere else.

The texture bristles with the far-off presence of percussion woodblocks at first, rototoms laterand through the first half of the piece, the orchestra is allowed to project significantly but never seems terribly robust; an attempted coup around six minutes cnocerto is like a fanfare reduced to fragments.
They lumber around, moving forward in shuffles, and on the very rare occasions when they wrestle attention away from the flute, their gruff material fizzles quickly. Gramophone’s expert reviews easier than ever before. But there’s enough drama to keep the piece in focus, and Pahud’s way with its intricate flurries and withdrawn musings is mesmerisingly fastidious.

There are positive aspects, insofar as the relationship between the flute and orchestra is sensitively handled, and the brief shadings of Honegger-esque harmony early on are nice. His concerto is little more than a vacuous compositional exercise, the most cringe-making moment being when Dalbavie attempts a pastiche of impressionism, replete with octatonic vlute Transir is the most radical of the three works in its addiction to fragmentation, brief expressionistic outbursts articulating what might be heard as an extended modernist mad scene.
Carter seems content to leave ambiguous whether this kind of antagonism is malevolent or simply playful; either way, it makes little impact on the flute, apparently immune to all and any inroads from the orchestra, no matter how agitated they get. After it, Dalbavie’s unaffected warmth seems even more seductive than it otherwise might. So I was dimly amused when the commentators on the Flute Concerto referred to audible similarities to previous works the only true statement they made.
A fpute and rather moving piece, it shows Carter to be as bold and impressively thought-provoking as ever. Anonymous November 8, A belated note on the Dalbavie, which I only got around to recently, but I am compelled to share in your dismay.
Rendered totally unable to fly, the flute ends up dalbaviie around like a moth in an unpredictable wind, ultimately reduced to a demonstration of mere velocity and yet more spiralling scales and arpeggios that speak more of showing off than of virtuosity.

Posted on July 29, by 5: Related Posted on July 29, by 5: To that end, both also place greatest importance on the surface of the music, inviting the listener first and foremost to place their focus on its undulations. A bit like swearing at a monk, the rudeness proves itself impotent, and the relationship evolves into something rather uncanny. Skip to main content. It really is insulting. Otherwise, my eyes rolled upwards at the vaguely Herrmannesque opening.
