La Joie de Vivre (inspired by the painting by Picasso) for Flute and Piano

La Joie de Vivre was inspired by the painting by Picasso of the same name. That painting shows a Mediterranean scene with mythological figures, such as satyrs and a centaur and a nude woman playing music and dancing. The music goes through several transformations. It begins in a modal jazz style, but later evolves into folk-rock, blues-rock and finally ends with a folk dance, all of which evoke the spirit of the Picasso painting.

The recording of La Joie de Vivre has been released in 2019 on the Phasma Music label by the flutist Iwona Glinka, to whom La Joie de Vivre is dedicated. The information on the recording is below:
