Deux Dialogues, Op 114
Durey’s Deux Dialogues, Op 114 (1974) for solo flute, are dedicated to Jacques Le Trocquer. These pieces explore various aspects of musical ‘conversation’, including simple repetition of material, echo effects, contrasts of register, dynamic, character and contour, together with use of both simple and decorated melodic statements. Rests are used to separate and articulate the ‘voices’. Additionally, the second piece introduces a portion of material from the first (as a larger-scale echo) and features some mischievously mocking trills in its upper voice.
