Caroline Charrière (1960-2018)
Born 1960 in Fribourg (Switzerland), Caroline Charrière has accomplished flute studies at the Lausanne Conservatory (with Pierre Wavre) and completed them with Aurèle Nicolet and at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (GB). During the same time, she studied orchestration and composition with the Swiss composer Jean Balissat and conducting (Lausanne Conservatory, Hervé Klopfenstein)....
What instrument would be better suited than the flute, so close to breath, air and wind, to set the scenario of flight to music? Little by little, the bird, which we can imagine as the protagonist, breaks free of its supports to rise into the spheres of Aeolus. The bird was a symbol dear to the composer, especially towards the end of her life. She saw it as the bearer of a feeling of freedom and as a messenger from the beyond.
