“Melodie at its best!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

It is such a treat to find a book for two flutes and piano which has a winning combination of both familiar and less well-known composers. Faure's lovely blockbuster Apres un Reve has the flutes weaving the tune around between them whilst the more enigmatic Soir Paien by Georges Hue allows the atmospheric melodic line to float above a rippling piano accompaniment. Clair de Lune, again by Faure, is the best one to start with as the rhythms, key and range are modest but A Chloris by Reynaldo Hahn needs breath and tonal control to shape the contours effectively.  La Nuit by Chausson is low and dark, contrasting with the lightness of Faure's Notre Amour. This is a book which will continually give pleasure over the years and is a gateway to the interpration of the French style. As flute players we certainly all need that!

From the Publisher

This collection of six French songs is suitable for players of all levels. Arranged here for two flutes and piano, these pieces give flautists the opportunity to enjoy the exquisite melodic lines and sensitive piano accompaniments of Fauré and other masters of the genre.
