It is hard to categorize Robert Groslot. His music is always based on musical intuition, thus not permitting any clear delineation. Rather than filling rigid formal structures with musical material, Groslot uses a bottom-up method: based on a certain key idea (a melodic or rhythmic motif, a mood or a colour ...) his music develops, as it were, in a natural and spontaneous manner.
This album contains a number of works for chamber music, in which the flute in particular is given a prominent position: thus, the composer explores the possibilities of an instrument that has all too often been treated as a poor relation. Indeed, the relatively limited known repertoire for the flute is contrasted starkly by the almost endless technical possibilities and unsurpassed agility of this precious silver instrument. Groslot brings the instrument back into the spotlight in a sonorous adventure that wanders through many paths without losing the way.
