Morceau de lecture, Op 218


In the Morceau de lecture, or sight-reading exercise, Koechlin combines rhythmic freedom with his customary metrical freedom to create a rhapsodic, improvisatory, wide-ranging line for the flute. The piece also compresses a remarkable intensity of expression into its brief length before sinking to a somber but tranquil close.

from notes by Fenwick Smith © 1990

Dans le Morceau de lecture, ou exercice de déchiffrage, Koechlin combine liberté rhythmique avec sa coutumière liberté métrique pour créer une ligne rhapsodique, improvisée, qui utilise le registre complet de la flûte. La pièce comprend une remarquable intensité d’expression en dépit de sa brieveté, avant de plonger dans une fin sombre mais tranquille.
