Berceuse et Serenade
Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Instrumentation: Flute and Guitar
Includes 2 scores
A French composer of the 20th century, he studied composition, conducting and violin a the Paris Conservatoire. He is particularly noted for his wind writing, and his chamber music for winds shows great familiarity with the abilities of the instruments. He often demanded a great deal of technical skill, without losing the expressive, melodic style typical of 20th century French chamber music. This piece was written for flute and guitar in 1976, with the flute carrying the melody and the guitar the accompaniment.
