Here we have two composers who were roughly contemporary.
Though Martin was fifteen years older than Jolivet, both died in Scratching beneath the surface the two men had even more in common. Melody and lyricism was an abiding feature, too, and both had an unique and individual voice. One other attribute was a mystical and spiritual thread running through their music. Although Frank Martin was married to a flautist, he composed very few works which spotlight the instrument.
It calls for expert skill from the performer, covering the full range of the instrument and employing wide melodic leaps. It doesn't skimp on lyricism. The whole thing is cast in a neoclassical mould. The Sonata da chiesa of appeared originally as a piece for viola d'amore and organ.
Martin then arranged it for flute and organ for his wife Maria. In , the conductor Victor Desarzens, a fervent champion of the composer's music, arranged it for flute and string orchestra. It's an intensely beautiful work with a meditative vein running throughout.
Castellon weaves an expressive line around Martin's colourful harmonies, enhanced by Desarzen's masterful orchestration. Its four movement structure conforms to a slow-fast-slow-fast pattern. The opening is melancholic, but the second movement resembles a bustling scherzo. The Largo, which follows, is sombre and pensive, whilst in the finale the flute's skittish gestures call time in jovial manner.
The kaleidoscopic four-movement Suite en Concert harnesses wild incantations, ostinatos and complex rhythms. These elements are scintillatingly profiled in the third movement especially. The second movement, by contrast, is thought-provoking and chillingly atmospheric. The solo flute hovers like some disembodied spirit. The recordings are in top of the range sound, and instrumental balance is faultless.

Flute Concerto No. 1 (Jolivet)
In Jolivet helped found a contemporary chamber-music organization, La Spirale, later to become La Jeune France the name originated with Hector Berlioz , dedicated to fostering modern nationalistic music. During his service in the French Army during World War II , Jolivet grew interested in primitive religion and magic—influences that may be detected in his style. Opposition to the Neoclassicism of the s led him to experiments with the Ondes Martenot, an electronic instrument Concerto, , and with complex and enormous orchestrations Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, , in which the movements evoke sounds of Africa, East Asia, and Polynesia.

Jolivet wrote a number of concertos, all demanding considerable virtuosity from the soloist. These include a concerto for the ondes Martenot, an electronic instrument developed in France in the s, and concertos for trumpet and piano, for flute, for piano, for harp, for bassoon and harp, for percussion, for cello and for violin. Jolivet made an early impression on Messiaen with the six piano pieces that constitute Mana. Chamber music includes music involving the flute, an instrument he particularly favoured for its primitive human associations. Naxos 8. Warnier, Gimeno Naxos 8.
