Joueurs de Flûte for Flute and Piano, Op27
From the Publisher
Whereas Roussel's large-scale works are rarely programmed these days, his chamber music works are still very popular. For flautists, the cycle Joueurs de Flûte is a frequently performed standard work of the 20th century. Its unique charm lies in the assignment of mythological flautists to distinguished flautists of the early 20th century. Thus were created short musical portraits of the dedicatees which reflect these fascinating flautists: Gaston Blanquart, Marcel Moyse, Louis Fleury and Philippe Gaubert.
