Envol, Op56 for Solo Flute by Florentine Mulsant
Commissioned by and dedicated flutist Isabelle Duval.
This work is composed of six untitled contrasted movements, emphasizing the different aspects of the instrument. Movements I – III are written in a melodic mood. Movement IV mixes Staccato sounds and natural sounds. Movement V offers the possibility to hear multiphonics as a resonance of the theme played at the beginning of the movement. Movement VI concludes the cycle in a luminous atmosphere.
