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.

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.

Ibert 's brief but brilliant Entr'acte is one of his most well-recognized works and a direct product of his love for Spanish literature and music. The entr'acte of that music was published that same year for flute or violin and guitar or harp.

It has been transcribed for and recorded with many other instruments since its original publication. It opens with a breathless, whirling dance with propulsive accompaniment, inspired by flamenco guitar music. The opening is then repeated after the briefest of pauses, the music vividly calling to mind a dancer as he or she improvises a variation on the theme.

That image of an animated dancer, showing off his or her footwork, continues in the following serenade-like solo for the guitar. That, in turn, leads into a cadenza for both instruments and a final, brief statement of the theme, ending, so obviously, with the dancer's arms in the air and a final stamp of the feet.

Jacques Ibert

Having studied music from an early age, he studied at the Paris Conservatoire and won its top prize, the Prix de Rome at his first attempt, despite studies interrupted by his service in World War I. Ibert pursued a successful composing career, writing sometimes in collaboration with other composers seven operas, five ballets, incidental music for plays and films, works for piano solo, choral works, and chamber music. He is probably best remembered for his orchestral works including Divertissement and Escales As a composer, Ibert did not attach himself to any of the prevalent genres of music of his time, and has been described as an eclectic. This is seen even in his best-known pieces: Divertissement , for small orchestra is lighthearted, even frivolous, and Escales is a ripely romantic work for large orchestra.
