Two Miniatures For Flute And Piano is a pair of short pieces from the late classical period, carefully arranged as performance solos for the Flute with Piano.
Beethoven’s Sonata In B Flat was composed ca. 1790, and is one of the very few pieces that he wrote for the Flute. The Rondo In E Minor was written in 1810 by Mozart’s youngest son, Franz Xaver Wolfgang, who often struggled to gain recognition on his own merits during his lifetime.
Two Miniatures has been arranged by Louis Moyse (1912-2007), a noted French flautist, pianist, composer, music editor, and pedagogue. Raised in Paris, he was educated by his father Marcel, also a famous flautist, but spent most of his working life in North America.
