“NT 22 010 - Sophie Lacaze: La Lune dans l'Eau, for young storytelling flautist In 1993, composer Sophie Lacaze chose the translucent timbre of the flute to explore the 'mysterious origins' of vowels and their association with colours in Rimbaud's poem Voyelles (NT 14 451 Z). The composer's fascination with this age-old instrument has never ceased to grow, and was further impelled by her encounter with Pierre-Yves Artaud, to whom she dedicated Les quatre éléments and Het Lam Gods II. Sophie Lacaze has now produced a score for young storytelling flautist in La Lune dans L'eau, a study miniature initially written for saxophone students and published in the Opensax collection (AL 30 701). Written for Year 3 and up, the piece delicately interlaces music and poetry, with the musician pronouncing aloud a haiku by Ueda Chôshû (1852-1932): 'Though in a thousand shards / It is always there / The moon on water.' With a wide variety of techniques and performance indications, this volume is a veritable kaleidoscope of the flute's powers of expression, though this profusion never clouds the limpidity of a unique art: the art of simplicity.&rdquo.
