A bit like swearing at a monk, the rudeness proves conccerto impotent, and the relationship evolves into something rather uncanny.

Like other high-profile wind players, Emmanuel Pahud has sought to compensate for the dearth of pre concertos by commissioning contemporaries. These three works provide a well balanced programme, and high standards of playing and recording combine to make this a release to be reckoned cincerto.

After this, Michael Jarrell’s …un temps de silence… and Matthias Pintscher’s Transir are a good deal more intense. Despite first appearances, there are commonalities between the two works. It really is insulting.

His concerto is little more than a vacuous compositional exercise, the most cringe-making moment being when Dalbavie attempts a pastiche of impressionism, replete with octatonic scales: Gramophone’s expert flutte easier than ever before. I previously encountered his work on a program split with Kurtag!! Transir is the most radical of the three works in its addiction to fragmentation, brief expressionistic outbursts articulating what might be heard as an extended modernist mad scene.

There was also a large ensemble piece which was audibly a grab-bag of bits of Favourite Twentieth Century Classics a bit of the Ligeti Five Pieces here, a bit of that there. In fact, as the work unfolds, the quizzical nature between the one and the many takes on an ecstatic quality, the flute continuing its endless melody in a quasi-mystical manner, ever quieter and more tranquil.
