Jacques Castérède was born on this day in 1962 in Paris, France. Romantic, but quite modern, his studies for flute can be very technical and rhythmic. His music is essentially melodic, often using modal scales over rich and varied rhythmic structures. This short and quirky etude has the dance-like qualities of a scherzando, but unexpected, multi-metered shifts create an unpredictable approach to the standard form. These studies are charming and work well as short stand alone performance pieces.
