Original Composition by Heitor Villa-Lobos
Performed by:
Amelie Brodeur - Flute
Natalie Spehar - Cello

Villa-Lobos composed Assobio a Jato (The Jet Whistle) in New York in 1950. The composer named his work to describe the sound created by the technique he calls on the flutist to use during its last movement, "the jet whistle." To produce the effect, the player blows directly and forcefully into the flute with his or her mouth directly on the mouthpiece. Combined with a glissando, the resulting whistle sounds like a jet flying overhead. This finale is preceded by an opening Allegro non troppo, where the cellist and flutist alternate between one playing a folk-like melody while the other accompanies insistently, and a lyrical Adagio slow movement.
