The use of doubles or triple flutes is a secular tradition in many civilisations, in particular antique and Amerindian. From there, the idea of a work soloist for a “double recorder”. Doppio (“double” in Italian) thus closes a cycle of three “multi-stage” parts (each one being developed more than the following one), all based on this same principle: Diaulos 1, Diaulos 2, Doppio. Consequently, the energy of the breath necessary to the projection of the sound becomes thus resolutely essential.
This work is dedicated to Pierre Hamon, specialist in the doubles and triple flutes of the whole world.
