The music in this concert for flute and piano represents many styles and spans 106 years, from 1908 - 2014. Written almost exactly between the earliest work (Debussy’s The Snow is Dancing) and most recent piece (Füting’s Ist-Mensch-Geworden), Jolivet’s Ascèses forms the axis of the program, with its 5 movements interspersed throughout the other 6 pieces. History is scrambled and new connections made by this dialogue; the pieces seem to extend or disrupt each others logic and cast light on how they relate to the world around them.
