Philippe Gaubert: Sonata For Flute And Piano No.2

Books | Flute, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Heugel
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, Sonata No. 2 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 Sonata No. 2 which premiered in 1925. Addressing many technical features, including flourishing semiquaver passages, a wide range, emotion, intervals, chromaticism and complex rhythms, Sonata No. 2 is a challenging yet riveting and stirring piece for aspiring flautists.
