Godard Suite De Trois Morceaux-Flute and Piano-Chester
Godard Suite De Trois Morceaux-Flute and Piano-Chester (Benjamin Godard: Suite De Trois Morceaux Op.116-Chester Woodwind Series. Edited by Trevor Wye). A beautiful three movement piece arranged for flute and piano, this work contains lyrical melodies and fast technical passages with some challenging sections throughout. The lyrical first and second movements contrast with the last movement which has a fun waltz style feel.
Benjamin Louis Paul Godard (1849-1895) was a French violinist and Romantic-era composer. In 1863, he studied at the Paris Conservatoire Godard under Henri Vieuxtemps (violin) and Napoléon Henri Reber (harmony). His compositional output included eight operas, five symphonies, two piano concertos, two violin concertos, string quartets, violin and piano sonatas, piano works and a multitude of songs. He later became a Professor at the Paris Conservatoire in 1887.

Wye was also a Professor at the Guildhall School of Music, London and for 21 years at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
