Taffanel Andante Pastoral and Scherzettino-Flute and Piano-IMC
Taffanel Andante Pastoral and Scherzettino-Flute and Piano-IMC (IMC2180)
French composer and renowned flautist, Paul Taffanel studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Vincent Dorus, graduating in 1860. He built a dazzling career as a solo flautist and orchestral player and was regarded as one of the foremost flute players of his generation. In addition to his flute-playing career, Taffanel also conducted the Paris Opera and The Société des Concerts du Conservatoire.
Regarded as the founder of the French Flute School, Taffanel revised the Paris Conservatoire’s repertoire and teaching methods when he became Professor of Flute at the Conservatoire in 1893. His pupils learnt to play in a new, smoother style with a light and carefully controlled vibrato.
Taffanel composed an array of music for flute including Andante Pastoral et Scherzettino, Grande Fantaisie sur Mignon, Fantasy on ‘Der Freischütz (after von Weber), Fantaisie sur Françoise de Rimini, for flute & piano (after Ambroise Thomas), Fantaisie sur Jean de Nivelle, for flute & piano (after Léo Delibes) and Fantaisie sur Les Indes Galantes, for flute & piano (after J.P. Rameau).
