Jolivet André

André Jolivet (1905-1974) was a French composer and conductor, known as music’s most sophisticated primitivist. Jolivet liked to expand boundaries of such "primitive" instruments as flute and percussions and described his explorations as "restoring music's original ancient sense".
During his service in the French Army in WWII Jolivet became interested in primitive religion and magic which later developed his style, which sometimes combined exotic and esoteric components.
Even though he wrote concertos for traditional instruments like flute, violin or cello, he managed to come up with rather unusual sonic combinations inspiring many composers to follow these paths. Edgar Varèse has been acknowledged as Jolivet's teacher and mentor who inspired André to formulate his musical style, experimenting with atonality, sound-masses, and other unconventional acoustical properties.
