Guiot Flute Quartet - Divertimento-Jazz for Four Flutes: Nice

This clip is from the first movement (Nice) of the work.
Guiot is famous in a small circle of musicians, especially flautists, who revel in the jazzier side of music. He was born in Northern Paris in 1930, and his many pieces for flute include duos and quartets, and works for flute with ensembles that are often unashamedly jazz based. This three movement quartet has all the swing and “blue notes” that characterise his music. It is dedicated to Lise Daoust, associate professor of performance in the music faculty at the University of Montreal. Guiot was never afraid of the unconventional – hence perhaps the existence of a rather unusual recording in which he plays both flute and piano.
