Flute Music by French Composers

The French school of flute playing is one of the most influential schools for modern flute playing. Paul Taffanel (1844-1908), the most important flutist and teacher, showed the world brand new possibilities of the silver version of the instrument. His playing was filled with elegance, flexibility and sensitivity which brought him the professorship in the Paris Conservatoire. He has nurtured lots of amazing flutists of all time and inspires composers to write for this beautiful instrument. We will guide you through the chronology of French flute music and bring you music from French baroque to modern days!

Programme

Flute Music by French Composers features solo, chamber works and arrangements for flute written by French composers from the past to present.
