Wind for piccolo op 90
The work, with a duration of 4 mn 30 has been composed in December 2019.
It is a commsission of the flutist Jean Louis Beaumadier to whom it is dedicated.
Composed of a single movement, with a very melodic character, it is articulated around four parts.
The first part, from measure 1 to 8, presents the different thematic elements : arpeggios imitating the breath of the wind, and, the lightness of the writing, in a lively tempo.
The second part, from meausre 9 to 37, develops these elements around a very fluent melody.
A third central party, from measure 38 to 57, offers a new melodic line, more intimate in a moderate tempo.
From measure 58 to 83, there is a re - exposure of the measures 1 to 5 of the first part, followed by a new development.
A coda, from measure 84 to 105 concludes the work in a beautiful energy.
