André Jolivet wrote for the flute throughout his entire compositional career. His understanding of the instrument’s character was unrivalled and his contribution to its repertoire stands among the greatest in the 20th century. In his absorption of influences, from jazz to Middle Eastern music, he established a new tone for the flute, the oriental infusions of which can be heard in Cinq Incantations. Chant de Linos, his most popular flute piece, offers a mythic panorama full of lamentation and dance, while the rhythmically complex Flute Sonata and the lyric elements in Ascèses affirm his musical convictions.
