Sonatine for Flute and Piano

£19.99

From the Publisher

Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941) was a distinguished performer on the Flute. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that his compositions for the instrument are at the forefront of the Flute's repertoire, his Sonatina being no exception. After a prominent career as a flautist with the Paris Opéra, Gaubert was appointed as professor of Flute at the Paris Conservatoire as well as principal conductor of leading orchestras. It was during this time that Gaubert composed, including his Sonatina for Flute and Piano, which is made up of two movements, the second being a homage to Schumann. Addressing many technical features including flourishing semiquaver passages, a wide range, lyricism, intervals, chromaticism and complex rhythms, Sonatina is a challenging yet riveting and stirring piece for aspiring flautists.
