Chant De Linos (Flute, Harp and String Trio)
Chant De Linos for flute, harp (or piano) and string trio. (Score Only) By André Jolivet, Published by Alphonse Leduc.
This piece is quite difficult to execute but will stand out in a competition or a recital. Inspired from what is called a “Chant de Linos,” a threnody (or lament to the dead) in the Greek antiquity, this piece is also about Linos, son of Apollo. A good music player, Linos taught Orpheus the lyre and was killed by Heracles for criticising him too much. André Jolivet is a French composer who was really inspired by the Antiquity and had a strong interest for atonality. He also wrote many chamber music pieces, eleven concertos, some orchestral and some vocal music.
