Taffanel, P

International Music Company presents Paul Taffanel's 'Andante Pastoral and Scherzettino' for flute and piano.

'As professor of flute at the Conservatoire de Paris, Paul Taffanel had the opportunity of commissioning new pieces not only for flute, but for all the wind and brass instruments on the occasion of the institution s annual 'concours' (competitions). He thereby helped create an enduring solo repertoire for them. The flute 'concours' of the Conservatoire of Paris was not only the most important annual event for the flutists of the institution, but also served as a platform to present new music. Composers such us Gabriel Faure, Cecile Chaminade, Joachim Andersen, Alphonse Duvernoy, and Louis Ganne were all commissioned to create the contest piece. The Andante Pastoral et Scherzettino was composed by Paul Taffanel himself as the competition piece for the 1906 flute 'concours'. It was his final work. Dedicated to his student Philippe Gaubert, the Andante Pastoral et Scherzettino, like the majority of morceaux de concours, falls as the title implies into two sections, slow and fast, that showcase the player s musical and technical skills.'
