FAURE - STARR; Valse-Caprice in D-flat Major, Opus 38, for flute and piano (an arrangement by Mark Starr of Gabriel Faure's grande valse de concert no. 2, originally for piano solo)
Here is a grand waltz from the Belle Epoque in Paris just before the turn of the 19th century. I have arranged Faure's sweeping valse de concert no. 2, originally for piano, as a bravura showpiece for flute and piano. The piece is in the tradition of works like the popular Valse de Concert for flute and piano by Benjamin Godard (Faure's contemporary) – except Faure uses a vastly more sophisticated harmonic palette and melodic imagination than Godard. Perhaps the most memorable section of this arrangement for flute and piano is the second theme - which exploits the rich low register of the flute in a manner that will challenge the flutist's breath control to the maximum. This transcription requires a flutist with the full tone and personality of a major soloist.
