Jacques Ibert (1890-1962) studied at the Paris Conservatoire before embarking upon a successful composing career. The composer wrote for a variety of instrumentations and his works remain popular to this day, Entr'acte, arranged for Flute or Violin and Harp being no exception.
Composed in 1935, Entr'acte is suitable to intermediate level flautists, violinists and harpists. Ibert was a unique composer who did not associate himself with any particular style. His music is generally lighthearted, often reflecting the composer's wit and humour. Containing a variety of musical aspects and techniques, and significantly composed for an unusual arrangement of Flute or Violin with Harp accompaniment, Ibert's Entr'acte is an exciting addition to the intermediate level Flute, Violin and Harp repertoire.
