Trio for Flute, Harp and Percussion (Vibraphone, Marimba) by Florentine Mulsant
Score and parts
A one-movement piece in which the contemplative atmosphere underlines the specific character of each instrument. The overall structure is articulated as a mirror, and is followed by a long coda expressed by the vibraphone. The rhythmic proliferation, here, is not a factor of instrumental tension, rather a path toward harmony and simplified musical volumes.
Florentine Mulsant ia a French composer born March 27, 1962. Her musical style derives from two marked sources: the post-serial heritage which influenced the European composers in the 50es, and the revival of musical expressionism which is more and more vivid among today’s composers. She studied for 12 years at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris, where she benefited from a classical education in harmony, counterpoint, fugue, analysis, and orchestration provided by major French Professors.
