Spirit of Corrente
The second piece in a cycle for cello, after Spirit of Preludio (2014) written for five-string cello, this short score refers to the courante. Without wishing strictly to reproduce the structure of J. S. Bach’s cello suites (especially the 6th), it draws inspiration from elements present in these musical forms. In Spirit of Corrente, for example, we find the levee (a rapid figure that is later repeated and developed) and the lively tempo of the piece as a whole. The piece is articulated in a constant flow, polarized around the note A, with a calmer ending. The melodic A minor scale is used throughout the piece, not as a harmonic structure, but as a found object, obtained by filtering the lift figure.
The cycle will also include three other pieces in reference to the Allemande, Gigue and Sarabande. This piece is dedicated to cellist Aurélienne Brauner. Jean-Louis Agobet
