Tune of the Day: Ricercare n. 2

Flute trio by Corrado Cristaldi

This flute trio was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Corrado Cristaldi from Italy. The piece was born as a useful study for intonation, but has also been performed in recitals. It features a couple of extended techniques, namely harmonics and “suono soffiato” (a.k.a. aeolian sound or son soufflé), where the flutist has to produce a very airy sound (this effect is not present in the MIDI and MP3 previews, sorry about that).

The main theme is loosely based on an Italian Catholic song by A. Marani, “Il Signore è la mia salvezza”. The literary quotations in French are a tribute to the travellers/writers who have described Italy in the eighteenth century.
