Divertissement, composed by Raymond Gallois Montbrun is a piece for Flute and Piano. Written for the Contest of the Paris Conservatoire, it was dedicated to Gaston Crunelle, a French professor at the Paris Conservatoire. Quite challenging, this piece is perfect for advanced students and would work well for a contest or a recital.
It features mild chromaticisms, changes of meters and rapid legato triplets and sounds very romantic.
