Les Baratineurs
Composed by Cedric Peachey
for Flute, Clarinet in Bb, and Piano
Published by Forton Music
Includes score and parts

A light-hearted divertissement for wind trio, with a soft centre, this was premiered by the award-winning London Myriad Ensemble in 2017. For those not familiar with the French term 'baratineur', it can mean a 'smooth talker' or a 'windbag'. Feel free to choose your preferred interpretation. The opening bars provide all the material which appears in various guises as the piece unfolds. During the initial joviality, the instruments display different characteristics, ranging from stubborn pomposity and a garrulous complacency that compete with the arrival of an excitable newcomer. The music then takes a sudden turn and becomes sadder in tone, as if something unforseen and unfortunate has cast a shadow over the conversation. This lasts for a while before the opening high spirits return and the characters say their 'au revoirs'.
