La Belle Epoque for Flute and Piano

French Music around 1900
Flute and Piano
Edition Schott
Edited by Edmund Waechter and Elisabeth Weinzierl


22 short pieces from the turn of the 20th century in France, suitable for intermediate-level players. Composers include Debussy, Fauré, Ravel, and Saint-Saëns amongst others. Includes original pieces and contemporary arrangements, all based on first editions and autographs.

The belle époque era occurred around the time of peace in Europe between 1871 and 1914. This era brought progress and development in many areas: technologically, economically, socially, and in the arts. Composers such as Claude Debussy, Gabriel Fauré, Camille Saint-Saëns and Maurice Ravel were key figures in this era. At the centre of it all, was Paris, where the ‘New French School’ of flute playing developed with the introduction of the Böehm flute.
