Vers Les Cimes (Toward The Peaks) for Solo Flute by Thierry Escaich

Duration: 5:20

To Philippe Bernold

Commissioned by the Festival des Forets and premiered on June 19, 2020 by Philippe Bernold in the Compiegne forest.

Composed in the spring of 2020, Vers Les Cimes  (Toward The Peaks) describes a relentless ascent that takes place in two phases. Each of these two parts resembles a form of ritual wherein various melodic motifs seem to be superimposed on a rhythmic, almost percussive base.  All these elements unfold in a given register, with their own modality and their own melodic contours, hence a polyphonic conception of the instrumental writing that has likewise defined some of my previous pieces, such Nun Komm for violin or Cantus I for cello.  Persistent rhythms, melodic abundance, multiple incantations, this hymn to nature having led it’s developmental process to it’s highest point, seems to return to the starting point at the moment it concludes, as if in an eternal recommencement.  — Thierry Escaich
