Product Description

"La Flute de Pan" by Alberto Guidobaldi was written for Guatemalan soprano, Daniela Yurrita. It was premiered by Yurrita, with Josean Delgado, alto flute, and Pedro Juan Jimenez, piano, in May of 2014 at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico. The poem used in this song is from Songs of Bilitis (Les Chansons de Bilitis) by Pierre Louys (1870-1925). Although born in Ghent, Belgium, Louys spent much of his life in France, studying at the Ecole Alsacienne in Paris. In 1891, Louys helped found a literary review, La Conque, where he published his first poems. Songs of Bilitis, published in 1894, is a collection of 143 prose poems, all of which discuss the life of the Greek female character, Bilitis.

Guidobaldi has selected the alto flute to compliment the soprano voice in this beautiful rendition of one of the poems from Songs of Bilitis, "La Flute de Pan". The work is only slightly over 4 minutes in length but its appeal will be long-lasting.

The set includes an extra piano-score for the vocalist.
