The Flute Put to the Test

A captivating chamber music concert, “The Flute Put to the Test”, as part of the illustrious “Fauré and His Pupils” cycle, will take place at the Palazzetto Bru Zane on April 19, 2024.

Prepare for an enchanting evening of virtuosity and musical prowess presented by Alexis Kossenko (flute) and Vassilis Varvaresos (piano), showcasing an array of exquisite works for flute and piano by Fauré, Enesco, Cools, Koechlin, and Masson.

Transporting audiences back to the enchanting Belle Époque, this concert unveils the enriched repertoire for accompanied flute—a fusion of sonatas and competition pieces that defined an era. Delve into the intricate realm of musical duets, where the piano often takes center stage, creating a harmonious interplay with the flute. Charles Koechlin’s Sonata for piano and flute, an exemplary creation, embodies the essence of a musical duet, intricately blending both instruments into a symphony of melodies.

Exploring competition pieces like Fauré’s Fantaisie (1898) and Enesco’s Cantabile et Presto (1904), originally crafted for the Conservatory competition, this concert becomes a platform to test the soloist’s virtuosity, demanding dexterity, purity of sound, and expressive prowess. The piano, serving as a complementary force, provides the backdrop for the soloist to shine while ensuring a harmonious interplay that captivates the audience.

Experience an evening steeped in musical finesse, where the flute’s capabilities are put to the test, unveiling a tapestry of melodies that exemplify technical brilliance and emotive depth. Join us for a mesmerizing journey through a repertoire designed to enthrall and uplift the soul.
