About

This popular showpiece contains romantic, melodic lines with sparkling technical passages. Composed by French composer Cécile Chaminade in 1902, this concertino is suitable for advanced players. This piece was originally composed for flute and orchestra, Although it was originally written for flute and orchestra, it is most commonly performed in the flute and piano version.

It was commissioned specifically for the Paris Conservatoire Annual Concours likely as an examination piece for flute students under the instruction of renowned flautist and teacher Paul Taffanel, to whom the Concertino is dedicated. Chaminade orchestrated the piece soon after its composition, and it was performed in London by Chaminade’s friend, flautist Marguerite de Forest Anderson.

Cécile Louise Stéphanie Chaminade

Cécile Louise Stéphanie Chaminade (1857-1944) was a French composer and renowned pianist.

Chaminade’s talent was recognised early on when she performed her compositions for Georges Bizet in 1869. In 1878, she gave a salon performance solely featuring her own compositions, marking the start of her career as a composer. Despite her father’s opposition to her attending the Paris Conservatoire, she studied composition privately with Benjamin Godard and other notable Professors.

She gave her first public recital at the age of 18 and gained recognition through concert tours. As a solo pianist, she proved popular with audiences in both the UK and the USA.

She gave her debut London performance in 1892 and in 1908, Chaminade achieved her American debut, performing with the Philadelphia Orchestra. She also became the first female composer to receive admission to the Order of the Legion of Honour in 1913. While her piano salon music and songs enjoyed wide popularity, her more serious works, including an opera, a ballet, and orchestral suites, received mixed reviews, often influenced by gender stereotypes rather than the merits of her compositions.

Chaminade’s extensive body of work comprises more than 400 compositions, including a wide range of piano pieces and songs. She also ventured into various other genres, such as opera, orchestral suites, ballet, and notably, her beloved “Concertino Opus 107” for flute and piano.
