Sonate V-jazz (Sonata Vodou Jazz Sonata) for Flute and Piano by Julio Racine
Published by Julio Racine
Spiral-bound piano score and flute part
III. Avec allure
This piece offers three styles in one: the form and instrumentation are classical in nature; the rich, extended harmonies create a jazz sonority; and the rhythmic patterns, especially in the piano part, were inspired by traditional Haitian folkloric music.
Julio Racine (1945-2020) was a Haitian flutist, conductor, and composer. He studied at the National Conservatory of Haiti and the University of Louisville School of Music. After his studies, he returned to Haiti where he became Professor of Flute and Conductor of the Holy Trinity Philharmonic Orchestra (Orchestre Philharmonique Sainte Trinité).
