Sonatine for Flute and Piano

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Sonatine for Flute and Piano is an early work by 20th-century French composer Henri
Dutilleux, composed and published in 1943.[1] It lasts about 9 minutes and consists of three
movements, played without break.

Overview[edit]
The Sonatine for Flute and Piano is one of a series of four test pieces for the Paris
Conservatoire that Dutilleux wrote between 1942 and 1951. They were commissioned by thendirector Claude Delvincourt. These pieces were intended both to test the technique of the
students and provide them with new scores.[2]
Dutilleux was notoriously critical of his early works, including the Sonatine. He once stated that
he had never been completely happy that it was played so often [3] but he never withdrew it.
... the flute piece is the Sonatine for Flute and Piano, which has been recorded many times
abroad, although I have never wanted it to be recorded in France because it doesnt yet sound
really like my music. But I havent put any embargo on that.[2][4]
The work has become a standard of the flute repertoire[2] and has been performed many times by
flautists such as Sharon Bezaly and Emmanuel Pahud. As of 2014, it is Dutilleux's most often
recorded work.[5]
