Bozza – Excerpts from Jose d’ete a la montagne

(A Summer’s Day on the Mountain)

 

Written in 1953, Eugène Bozza’s flute quartet paints clear pictures in the mind of the listener, exploring and stretching the capabilities of the instrument to extremes.  Throughout the four movements a variety of harmonies and textures are used to illustrate peace and serenity, constantly unsettled and restored once more.

Bolling – Excerpt from Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio

 

Claude Bolling’s Suite was composed as a challenge from world-renowned flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal to ‘write something that stays in the classical field for my flute and in the jazz idiom for you (Bolling).  In 1975 the work was completed and recorded, spending a record total of 530 weeks at the top of the Billboard charts.
