Joueurs de Flûte


From the Publisher

Lush french music with the scent of the orient, presumably inspired by the composer's time in India. Each of the four movements is a character study of a flute player friend of Roussel:-

  1. Pan, [god of nature, always depicted with ‘pan pipes’] is dedicated to the legendary Marcel Moyse.
  2. Tityre [Virgil’s Good Shepherd who plays on a slender pipe] is dedicated to the Conservatoire’s flute teacher Gaston Blanquart.
  3. Krishna [Hindu god who plays a transverse flute] is dedicated to Louis Fleury who also gave the first performance of the work.
  4. Mr. de la Péjaudie [an amazing flute player in a novel by H. Regnier] is dedicated to Philippe Gaubert.

The flute duet* (13 pp) comprises the flute solo plus all the accompaniment compressed into a single line for a second flute player. The accompaniment for piano remains as composed by Roussel.

Difficulty guide: 8
