Flute music has a long-associated history with French composers. Many works stand as the core repertoire for flute. At the same time, piano plays a glamorous role to co-create the huge variety of colors. This recital features works from Baroque to contemporary. The Arc guides you through a mixed programme of the big masters with some other legends. The Arc calls for your reimagination of the French soundworld.
The recital begins with the commonly-loved Faure Fantasie, featuring some idiosyncratic elements of French music. We then pair and contrast two classics sonatas written by Michel Blavet, a Baroque composer and traverso player, and a member of the Les Six Francis Poulenc. The third part features creativity and virtuosity in modern era compositions by Maresz and the flute legend Paul Taffanel.
A pre-concert talk by Dr. Martin Lee will provide some extra content for music lovers to learn more about these composers and the selected repertoire.
