Of Note

Jacque Ibert’s short but magnificent Entr’acte opens with a breathless, whirling dance with propulsive accompaniment, inspired by flamenco guitar music. The music vividly calls to mind a dancer as he or she improvises a variation on the theme. There is a final, brief statement of the theme, ending—so obviously—with the dancer’s arms in the air and a final stamp of the feet.

Marcelle Soulage sometimes used the male pseudonym Marc Sauval when composing her work. Although not widely known, this Peruvian-born French pianist and composer wrote more than 60 orchestral works, chamber music, pieces for keyboard and harp, and vocal/choral compositions.

Algues, Bernard Andrès’ collection of seven pieces for harp and oboe, flute, or violin is full of the distinctive harp techniques that make Andres’ compositions such a joy to play. The lyrical soprano line floats elegantly above the distinctive harp accompaniment. Andrès utilizes several interesting harp techniques in this piece, including xylophone sounds, harmonics, and playing with the fingernails.
