The purpose of this document is to identify and describe each of the works for flute and piano by Philippe Gaubert. It serves as a resource to flutists to explain the unique and idiomatic way Gaubert wrote for the flute, and will hopefully encourage the study and performance of his music.
The famous Méthode Complète de Flûte, begun by Paul Taffanel and completed by Philippe Gaubert, is consulted for ideas and methods of executing important musical concepts. The Méthode is a valuable resource for flutists of all ages and levels, and is an obvious foundation for the study of the flute music of Gaubert. In studying the Méthode, it becomes clear the aspects of flute playing that were important to these fine teachers. Accordingly, the Méthode centers on good tone production as the primary ideal for which all flute players strive. Using the Méthode as a guide, elements such as tone color, technique, dynamics, articulations, and phrasing are included in all of the discussions of Gaubert’s works for flute and piano. Each description also gives suggestions for the level of difficulty of each piece, and discusses possible problems with technique, rhythm, range, and musicality.
