About this Event

Expressing the Incantatory: Performing Jolivet’s Cinq églogues (1967) for solo viola

André Jolivet (1905-1974) was among the most influential French composers of the last century, renowned for his combination of innovative language with expressions of the sacred and incantatory. Spanning the breadth of his compositional oeuvre, Jolivet’s works for strings are some of his most personal musical statements. This talk focuses on the Cinq églogues for solo viola as a microcosm of Jolivet’s late style and will include selected illustrations given by the violist Charles Whittaker, concluding with a complete performance.

Caroline Rae is a reader in music, pianist, writer and broadcaster. She is the editor of André Jolivet: Music, art and literature (Routledge, 2018) and has written extensively on French music since Debussy. She also works on twentieth-century music in Latin America and has particular interests in Franco-Hispanic interactions as well as performance practice and music criticism. She was a piano pupil of Dame Fanny Waterman from childhood, later studying in France with Yvonne Loriod-Messiaen (French Government Scholarship) and in Germany with David Wilde and Karl-Heinz Kämmerling at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hannover.
