Anthony Girard : L'Oiseau bleu

for six recorders

According to Anthony Girard, the music creation should lead to a space of freedom and plenitude. Poetry and mysticism are most important to understand his language evolution. If purely musical stylistic influences such as the modern French school, Gregorian chant and the roots of polyphony, the music of India or minimalism, cannot be excluded, the real key to his cursus are his literary and spiritual affinities.

Inspired by the fairy poetics of Maeterlinck, L'Oiseau Bleu comes in the wake of repetitive minimalist pieces by introducing a mixture of naivete, humor and melancholy. Originally conceived for six flutes alto, it sounds just as well for a sextet of clarinets. A version for piano is available. [Instrumental parts freely downloadable]
