Jaques Ibert: The Eclectic Composer

Project Type

Event

Abstract

This presentation is based on a paper I wrote analyzing Jacques Ibert’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra. The work looks at the small details Ibert chooses in each movement of the piece, like specific chords, as well as the overall structure and form of the piece. I then compare this work to characteristic ideas of compositions and explain how this piece is unique to Ibert. I conclude that Ibert makes use of the chromatic scale to connect his post-tonal writing with classical form, making the work acceptable to the ear and understandable to the listener.
