(Music Sales America). This Sonata For Flute and Piano is a virtuosic flute solo by renowned influential French composer Francis Poulenc. Written in 1956-57, this is an elegant, dreamy chamber work and he has demonstrated his obvious compositional skill, also highlighting the French affinity with the sweet sounds of the flute. Carefully edited by Carl Schmidt in 1994, this is an authoritative edition that contains a detailed history and comprehensive commentary of the editorial process in English, French and German.

This score is clear and clean and meticulously edited. A history of the piece, extensive critical notes, and bibliographic accounts of the source material used for the edits within are all provided in the scores first few pages (in English, French, and German). Would thus be very helpful for a college student preparing for a recital, for instance. The piece of course is beautiful (and, for this flute doubler, very challenging).
This really is a beautiful book. Not only is it of one of my favorite pieces of music, but the book itself is a really nice quality. It is a paperback, but the outside front and back cover is a thick, shiny, coated paper. It has an insert for the flute part and attached in the book itself is the piano part. One of my favorites!
Exactly what we needed for my daughters audition and less expensive than the sites the school recommended. thanks!
