6 Dances pour Syrinx

Flute part and Guitar score

Composer: Desportes

Publisher: Billaudot

Instrumentation: Flute and Guitar

 

A French composer of the 20th century, Yvonne is also the daughter of Emile Desportes.  The dances are short, allowing for a quick taste of each key.  The dances are: Sabotiere, Canon, Reverie, Fugette, Pastorale and Saltarelle.  The flute does carry the melodic line in most of the pieces, with the guitar setting the canon and fuguette melodies.
