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, “Romance” 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 “Romance” which premiered in 1905. Addressing many technical features, including flourishing semiquaver passages, a wide range, emotion, intervals, chromaticism and complex rhythms, “Romance for Flute and Piano” is a challenging yet riveting and stirring piece for aspiring flautists.
