Cinq Incantations
Jolivet, A

Andre Jolivet presents Cinq Incantations [Five Incantations] for flute alone.

'The son of a painter and a pianist, Andre Jolivet exhibited early musical talent. His strongest musical influences included Debussy, Dukas, Ravel, Le Flem, and Varese. In 1936, Jolivet, along with composers Olivier Messiaen and Yves Baudrier, formed the group known as 'La Jeune France.' Sharing an interest in spiritual concerns and a desire to widen the emotional range of music, this group promoted spiritual values and human qualities in a mechanical and impersonal world.

Of particular importance to Jolivet was the rediscovery of music s original ancient meaning and expression. In the same year that he joined this group, Jolivet composed his Cinq Incantations for solo flute. This 5-movement work deals with the life cycle and the idea of the harvest. Written shortly after the death of his mother, this work calls forth both expansive and coiled lines, repeated motives summoning an incantatory character, and a deep intensity of sound. It is Jolivet s particular use of repetition that results in an equally static, evolutionary, meditative, and spellbinding atmosphere.'
