Composed by Roger Bourdin
For flute (and bass flute) and piano
Published by Editions Robert Martin
Includes score and part
Duration: 3'45″

      This is happy and bubbly music with a theme that is written in “staccato” (with doubled notes), and then played in “flatterzung” with a refrain in “staccato”, in keeping with the first version. In a sense, it is an exercise in the double recreation of a piece – both linguistically and in flatterzung, interspersed with two entertaining tracks of lyrics. Roger Bourdin composed this piece while on an airplane that was circling around in the sky before being cleared for landing at an airport. He then played it and recorded it with Paul Bonneau and his orchestra, in the context of a collection of illustration music titled “Télécinéradio” (Télécinéradio Volume 7 “Spécial solistes” Chappell Mood Music – LP TCR 107). This album was unfortunately not available to the public and its distribution was very limited, but a shorter version of Stac-Flat for flute and piano was published in 1966 (Chappell S.A Paris, C.S.A 5724). Roger Bourdin made an extended version several years later with ten flutes, four harps, and an upright bass, played during a memorable concert given on September 30, 1971 in Paris, in the Gaveau room. 
      This new edition includes additional indications that take into account Roger Bourdin's recording and take: 
      – Details on the accents
      – Breaths in parentheses
      – Lyrical interludes, the flutist ornaments elegantly, in the style of “light music”: only the big glissandi are indicated; he uses a bass flute at two different moments
