Concerto - Flute and Piano

Price: $39.60

Description

For flute solo with piano reduction of orchestra.

Published in 1934, the Concerto is one of the most frequently interpreted Flute concertos by Jacques Ibert (1890-1962), a neoclassical composer who won the Prix de Rome in 1919. Written for the French flautist Marcel Moyse, it is rated as difficult and is composed of three movements: Allegro, Andante and Allegro Scherzando. The first one, Allegro, is challenging with a rapid suite of sixteen notes followed by a theme more lyrical. Andante, the second movement, is lyrical and recalls Ibert's suite Escales (1924). Finally, Allegro Scherzando reminds us of French drama through its theatricality and can be difficult for the soloist due to its rhythmic part.

Jacques Ibert (1890-1962) also composed many symphonic suites, operas and seven orchestras, including Angelique (1926) and Divertissement (1930). He also was in charge of the Accadémie de France in the Villa Médicis (Roma) and was later administrator for the Paris Opera.
