Jones + Wong: Debussy, Franck & Fauré
Mon 31 July @ 13:10 - 14:00Free
FIFTY YEARS AND FRENCH!
This flute and piano recital will include wonderful repertoire of the French Impressionistic and Romantic times. Featuring the famous L'Après Midi d'un Faune by Debussy arranged for flute and piano by famous flutist Platanov, the iconic Franck Sonate originally composed for violin and piano but arranged for flute by Jean Pierre Rampal who also made this a very well known addition to the flute repertoire. Also included is the beautiful Morceau de Concours by Gabriel Fauré. This is one of the competition pieces commissioned annually for the Paris Conservatoire flute students as a yearly competition but now used as the repertoire for entrance to the Conservatoire. And the well known Syrinx for solo flute by Debussy is also featured.
The Fifty years in the title refers to the number of years since Derek Jones began playing the flute! This recital will be a journey through time both for Derek personally and also as we step into the wonderful world of French flute music in the late 1900s. Jerry Wong will join Derek on the piano.
