BACH His music is truly a legacy. J.S. Bach's music overwhelms our senses and takes us on a musical journey of emotion. Not only did his music create an impact during his life, but it continues to do so for many lives to come. OLIVIER MESSIAEN Le Merle Noir translates to mean The Blackbird, and was a Conservatoire test piece from 1951. Messiaen studied birds from a young age, and has written several pieces inspired by birdsong. THEOBALD B5HM B6hm wrote Air VariS de La Molinara in 1822 based on the theme from Paiselio's opera. B6hm built himself his first flute at the age of sixteen, and designed the wB6hm system" flute that we know today. In addition to being a flute maker, composing for flute came naturally to him. AARON COPLAND The Duo for Flute and Piano was written in 1971 and arranged for clarinet and piano in 1977. Copland wrote very few chamber works, but what he did compose was written so well that it rarely required revision. SIGFRID KARG-ELERT Appassionata was written in 1917. This piece takes the performer and listener through several emotional stages that are described in the music as "stormy", "calm", and "feverish". Karg-Elert was a student of Grieg's and taught composition at the Leipzig Conservatoire. BENJAMIN GODARD The Suite de Trois Morceaux was written in 1890 for Paul Taffanel, the father of flute playing. Marcel Moyse once played this piece with Godard's daughter as his accompanist.

Programme Notes J.S. Bach His music is truly a legacy. J.S. Bach's music overwhelms our senses and takes us on a musical journey of emotion. Not only did his music create an impact during his life, but it continues to do so for many lives to come. The Partita in A minor BWV 1013 is a technical tour deforce for unaccompanied flute which could almost have been commissioned by some proud flute maker to show off the instrument's new-found voice. In style it has much in common with the Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violin, to which it was in fact appended in a unique manuscript copy of c. 1723. The four movements of the Partite differ slightly from the classic pattern of the suite: Allemande, Corrente (replacing a Courante), Sarabande, and final Bourree Anglaise (instead of a Gigue). Sergei Prokofiev Although originally written for flute, this sonata has been very successful as a violin sonata. Violinist David Oistrakh asked Prokofiev to arrange it for him immediately after its debut performance in 1943. Eugene Bozza Bozza was a student of violin at the Paris Conservatoire. He composed Image in 1939 and dedicated it to the eminent teacher and flute virtuoso Marcel Moyse. Heitor Villa-Lobos Villa-Lobos is the most celebrated Brazilian composer of all time. What Villa-Lobos wished to achieve in the nine Bachianas Brasileiras (1930-1945) was a ratified choros, paying homage both to Brazilian life as he saw it and to the greatest of his European predecessors, Bach. Directly related to Choros No 2 was Bachianas Brasileiras No 6, a duo for flute and bassoon written in 1938, the first movement of which even borrows the word choro for its subtitle. His use of the wprd choroas a generic title is broad-based: it implies spiritual concept, actual technique and form. The spirit of choros suffused all Villa-Lobos's instrumental compositions from around 1920 until 1930, and many thereafter. Paul Taffanel The French flautist Paul Taffanel is often claimed to be the greatest exponent of his instrument ever to have lived. At the age of eighteen he became principal flautist of the Opera-Comique and, soon after, of the Paris Opera. He taught at the Paris Conservatoire and mostly composed chamber music and arranged works by other composers.
