Pavane for flute and guitar

Flute part and Guitar score

Composer: Faure

Publisher: Schott

Instrumentation: Flute and Guitar

 

One of the leading French composers of his generation, Faure is considered to be the link between the end of Romanticism and the modernism of the second quarter of the 20th century.   Written in 1887 for piano, it is better known for its orchestration by the composer.  Obtaining its rhythm from the slow processional Spanish court dance of the same name, the piece ebbs and flows from a series of harmonic and melodic climaxes, conjouring a cool, somewhat haunting, Belle Epoque elegance.
