Pierre Max Dubois: Quatuor for Flutes

With music for Flute Quartets being most commonly rearranged for the ensemble, it is unusual that a work is originally composed for that precise instrumentation. It is for that reason that Pierre Max Dubois' Quatuor for Flutes has been considerably well-received. As a student of Darius Milhaud, Dubois brought ideas of Les Six, of which Milhaud was a member, into the mid-1900s. Dubois' compositions are characteristically light with interesting and unusual harmonic and melodic textures, as conveyed in this Quatuor for Flutes . With all four parts being technically demanding, exploiting extended techniques to the maximum, this piece provides a challenging but enjoyable performance. Moreover, including a full score and separate parts, this edition is ideal. With few pieces for this instrumentation exisitng as original compositions, all Flute Quartets must ensure they try out Dubois' enticing four-movement piece.
