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. Anonymous March 25, Thank you. These three works provide a well balanced programme, and high standards of playing and recording combine to make this a release to be reckoned dalbavvie.

Posted on July 29, by 5: Despite first appearances, there are commonalities between the two works. 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 dablavie, 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.

After it, Dalbavie’s unaffected warmth seems even more seductive than it otherwise might. It works because there are no half-measures: 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 conceerto an attempted coup around six minutes in is like a fanfare reduced to fragments.
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.
This is indeed profoundly chilly music, constantly on the verge of freezing solid, never thawing into expansiveness.

But each and every time, barely after a few notes have been uttered, the nascent melody is quashed and everything twirls off somewhere else.

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.
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.

It really is insulting. If you are a library, university or other organisation that would be interested in an dalbavi subscription to Gramophone please click here for further information.
But there the similarities end.
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 beautiful and rather moving piece, it shows Carter to be as bold and impressively thought-provoking as ever. Rendered totally unable dalbavir fly, the flute ends up skittering 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.
Dalbaviie eschew the contemporary practice of opting for descriptive names; the bald title Flute Dalbavvie has connotations of its own, of course, but nonetheless suggests that deeply programmatic content is not the order of the day.

And this drivel is being presented — by leading performers and institutions, some of whom must surely know better — as important work by a leading composer? 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.

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.
