Composed on Bastille Day, 14 of July, 1898, Morceau De Concours is a work for Flute and Piano with simplicity of phrasing, style and rhythm, by French composer Gabriel Faure. 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 Paris Conservatoire were principally chosen for virtuosic content. Faure, who was professor of composition, and in 1905 became Director of the Conservatoire, wrote this little gem to provide a good test of musicianship.
