As “antinomy” (not to be confused with the element antimony) may be defined as the opposition between one law, principle or rule and another, so too does Hétu’s composition present contrasting views of the same musical idea.

Flute Concerto, Op.51Composer: Hétu, Jacques
Performance date: February 27, 1992

Date composed: 1992


One usually associates the flute with bright colors, brilliant sonorities and lively tempos. Yet much of Hétu’s Flute Concerto has a somber, moody feeling, almost as if the music had some dark secret it was trying to express. The soloist is almost constantly busy, often in serious dialogue with a member or members of the orchestra. Despite some dazzling, even virtuosic writing for the soloist, especially in the last movement, this is no light-hearted work.

Symphony No. 3Composer: Hétu, Jacques
Performance date: May 02, 1990

Date composed: 1971


Hétu is particularly concerned with structure and form in music. “The seed from which the entire [Third SymphonyT] grows is contained in the slow introduction,” he states in his program note. Later, he points out that “the symphony’s unity derives from the continuous interrelation of its elements.” The attentive listener will become aware of this tight construction, even if only on a subliminal level. This short but highly potent symphony fairly brims with tensile strength and powerful impulses.
