“Lovely music”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

These little Sonatas are just so tuneful that they make you feel really happy! Each of them has movements that stand alone as both the melodic and harmonic writing is easy on the ear. They are well presented too - each sonata starts with a reminder of the tonic and dominant triad to cement the key. The accompaniments are all playable which is a further bonus. However, their real strength is that a younger player can be stretched through lovely music. Priceless!

From the Publisher

Louis Drouet (1792-1873), much admired virtuoso flautist, composer, musical director and opera director, was 'a flautist of truly European standing and sphere of influence'. His method still forms part of today's standard teaching repertoire. The 'Little Sonatas' published here for the first time as a separate new edition constitute the final part of Part 3 of his method. In accordance with the remarks of Drouet who had two different performance versions in mind, the sonatas are available in two instrumentations: for two flutes and for flute and piano. The piano accompaniment, with its figured bass realized by Gottfried Bach, has been turned into a harmonic accompaniment.
