Philippe Gaubert: Sicilienne

Books | Flute, Piano Accompaniment

Catalogue No: HE26418
Composer: Philippe Gaubert
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941) was a distinguished performer on the Flute. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that his compositions for the instrument are at the forefront of the Flute's repertoire, Sicilienne being no exception.

After a prominent career as a flautist with the Paris Opéra, he was appointed as professor of Flute at the Paris Conservatoire, as well as principal conductor of leading orchestras. It was during this time that Gaubert composed, including his Sicilienne which was published in 1914. Addressing many technical features, including flourishing semiquaver passages, a wide range, changing time signatures, chromaticism, a variety in dynamics and dotted rhythms, Sicilienne is a pleasantly inspiring piece for aspiring flautists.

          I discovered this piece when I was looking for flute music for Grade 5/6 repertoire. 'Scrummy' is the only way to describe this piece. An immensely satisfying piece to work on and perform. Highly recommended for performance.

          A lovely piece very much in the French impressionist style. Very evocative and pretty.
