This publication is part of The Flute Collection, which brings together a range of selected pieces from the international concert life of famous flautists. Not to mention, it’s Curated by internationally acclaimed flautist Emmanuel Pahud.
Der Freischütz is a German opera with spoken dialogue in three acts. It premiered on 18 June 1821 at the Schauspielhaus Berlin. Based on the German folk legend of the Freischütz, Der Freischütz is considered the first important German Romantic opera.
Taffanel studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Louis Dorus, graduating in 1860. When Taffanel became Professor of Flute at the Conservatoire, in 1893, he revised the institute’s repertoire and teaching methods. Taffanel’s pupils learned to play in a new, smoother style that included a light and carefully-modulated vibrato. People still swear by his study books and perform his flute repertoire. Jack of all trades, Taffanel also conducted the Paris Opera and The Société des Concerts du Conservatoire.
