Concertino for Flute Solo


Cécile Chaminade, composer

Clayton Wilson, arranger

Concertino is a rhapsodic work in the romantic spirit featuring two principal themes. The work, composed by Cécile Chaminade in 1910, shows a mature understanding of the flute that emphasizes the beauty and technical qualities of the instrument. The original accompaniment was for piano, and this band accompaniment was scored by Clayton Wilson in 1960. Chaminade composed over 200 piano pieces and also wrote many literary articles. She began composing at the age of eight and began a career as a concert pianist when she was sixteen.
