Two pieces for Flute and Piano arranged by Kenneth Smith


Catalogue No: BML206-8

These two beautiful pieces are among many composed, around the turn of the 20th century, for or under the inspiration of the great French flute player and teacher Paul Taffanel. These and many other such works, highlights of the French Romantic tradition, were recorded by flautist Kenneth Smith and pianist Paul Rhodes, and were issued on the Divine Art label as a 3 CD set (DDA21371). New performing editions have been prepared by Ken Smith and several other similar works are in preparation. Kenneth Smith was for many years principal flute with the Philharmonia Orchestra in London until his retirement from that post in 2012.

The Nocturne by Alphonse Catherine is BML206; the Durand Romance is BML207 and both works are available in one folio as BML208. In each case, both the flute and piano parts are included separately.
