Chant De Linos (Flute, Harp & String Trio)
Chant De Linos (Flute, Harp & String Trio) By André Jolivet, Published by Alphonse Leduc.
“André Jolivet (1905-1974) composed Chant de Linos for the Solo de Concours at the Paris Conservatoire in 1944. Written for Flute, Harp and String Trio, this version contains the full score. 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 brilliant musician, Linos taught Orpheus the Lyre and got killed by Heracles for excessive criticism. André Jolivet is a French composer who was greatly 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.”
