Three songs for soprano, flute and piano op. 1
Close the window
Soprano, flute and piano
Written in 1984 on anonymous poems, these 3 melodies for sporano, flute and piano have a duration of 5mn 30.
The 1st melody for soprano, flute and piano illustrates a very pessimistic text where the poet sinks into an extreme despair. The instruments support this climate with a very tense language.
The 2nd melody for soprano and piano is based on a poem describing an impossible love, and offers to the voice and the piano a high lyrism.
The 3rd melody for soprano a capella brings out a text full of joy due to a shared love.
The voice, covering a large pitch offers a classical musical form where a refrain is surrounded with 2 episodes. The voice gives the impression of an almost improvised melody.
