Suite by Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941)for flute and pianoPublished by Meridian
This piece was written in 1921; each movement of the Suite was dedicated to a master flutist of the time. The Suite is moderately difficult, with the piano part and the flute's simple melodies quite reminiscent of the musical style epitomized by Erik Satie. It can only be assumed that in a time when pieces of great virtuosity were the standard, the Suite went unnoticed.
