Description:
Program note (English): The nature of the commission: a flute concerto, confronted me with the problem of composing a piece for a solo instrument and an orchestra. To write a solo concerto in the traditional sense seemed to me out of the question. I have tried to solve this question by making the flute, to the highest possible degree, an integral part of the orchestra. As a result, another problem arose: the combination of the - apart from the high register - relatively soft tone of the flute, and a rather extensive orchestra. Although the work has to be seen as a whole, five different sections can be distinguished: a. Introduction, b. Solo episode for flute, c. Episode for the string group (more or less a linking passage), d. Section for the flute and orchestra, and e. Final episode for flute solo. By far the most important section, and from a technical point of view the most interesting one, is the fourth fragment. The orchestral part of it consists of ten components of unequal duration and
dissimilar character. These components appear several times, alone and in combinations. It will be remarked that both these combinations, and from an instrumental point of view, the structure of the seperate fragments show a continuous variation. - JAN VAN VLIJMEN
