Jacques Ibert (1890-1962) studied at the Paris Conservatoire before embarking upon a successful composing career. The composer wrote for a variety of instruments and his works remain popular to this day, Entr'acte for Flute or Violin and Guitar being no exception.
Composed in 1935, Entr'acte is suitable to intermediate level flautists, violinists and guitarists. 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 Guitar accompaniment, Ibert's Entr'acte is an exciting addition to the intermediate level Flute, Violin and Guitar repertoire.
