Faure Morceau De Concours for Flute & Piano

Faure Morceau De Concours for Flute & Piano


Composed on July 14, 1898 (Bastille Day in France), Morceau De Concours is a charming piece for flute and piano. It showcases a delightful simplicity in its phrasing, style, and rhythm. This first publication is arranged and edited by scholar and Faure collector, Anabel Hulme Brieff.

Previous to the composition of Morceau De Concours, the required repertory of pieces for the flute competition at the Paris Conservatoire was principally chosen for virtuosic content. Faure, who was a Professor of composition, and in 1905 became Director of the Conservatoire, wrote this little gem to provide a good test of musicianship.
