Augure; Op. 61 (1953) by : Jean Guillou
Augure' is not about looking into the future. This piece does not attempt to conjure up omens; instead; it describes figures that may subsequently be interpreted in the listener's mind. The richest of conjectures may be carried by the music; prophecies hinted at by an atmosphere of sound whose vast expanses at the beginning of this work envelop us with a completely unadorned theme.
The introduction of material that is essentially rhythmical and aggressive does not preclude a sustained return to the original mood; but this time it is wrapped in an increasingly dense halo of sound; only to disappear at the end like plumes of smoke from a sacrifice.
