Bitsch 12 Etudes for Flute-Leduc


The Douze études pour flûte by Marcel Bitsch serve not only as practice material but also as short concert pieces, as emphasised by flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal in the preface to the Leduc edition. These studies are dedicated to Gaston Crunelle, a former Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris flute professor. Mr Bitsch himself was a student at the Paris Conservatoire and later became a professor there.

Marcel Bitsch

Bitsch (1921-2011) was a renowned French composer, teacher, and music analyst. He received his education at the Conservatoire de Paris and later became a professor of counterpoint at the same institution. In 1939, Bitsch won a place at the Conservatoire de Paris, studying harmony under Jean Gallon, counterpoint under Noël Gallon, musicology under Paul-Marie Masson, and composition under Henri Büsser. After completing his studies, Bitsch achieved notable recognition, winning the Second Prix de Rome in 1943 and the First Grand Prix de Rome in 1945.

In 1956, Marcel Bitsch embarked on his teaching career as a professor of counterpoint and later, fugue at the Conservatoire de Paris.

In his later years, he dedicated himself mainly to teaching and analysing the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Marcel Bitsch retired in the autumn of 1988, marking the conclusion of his esteemed career.
