Air d'automne (mp3)

Air d'automne (1990) [Autumn Air] is a composition charged with human emotion: it was finished a few days before the death of the composer's father. This helps us to understand better the sadness of the musician at this period. Alain Crepin has dedicated this piece to his father. The character of the composition is, naturally, nostalgic. It is based on a very expressive theme played by the solo flute at the beginning.

The main theme is transformed for each different group of instruments in the orchestra, showing each under the best light. The counterpoint enriches  the discourse by proposing admirable melodies which could themselves be used as secondary themes.

Autumn Air has rapidly become one of Alain Crepin's most popular works.
