Three Pieces by Cecile Chaminade 
Arranged by Dana H. Joras for Flute and Piano
Includes score and parts

Cecile Chaminade was the first female composer to win the Ordre national de la Legion d'honneur, the highest decoration in France. These Three Pieces by Cecile Chaminade were originally written for solo piano around the turn of the twentieth century. Quite difficult to perform on the piano, they lend themselves very well to a flute accompanied by piano. In addition to making an excellent suite, each of the pieces works just as well on its own.

“Cecile Chaminade (1857-1944) was born in Paris to a musical and artistic family.  A prolific composer, she was most well known for her lyric piano pieces. Chaminade's salon music was very popular in the United States and Europe during her life, but most of her songs and piano works were forgotten during the second half of the 20th century.  Cecile Chaminade was not only a popular and successful composer, but she also set several precedents as a woman in her field.  Described by Ambroise Thomas as “not a woman who composes, but a composer who is a woman,” Cecile Chaminade was the first female composer to win the Ondre national de la Legion d'honneur, the highest decoration in France.  These Three Pieces by Cecile Chaminade were originally written for solo piano around the turn of the 20th century.” -Preface by Dana H. Joras
