At a time when women weren’t typically considered composer material, Louise Farrenc and Cécile Chaminade triumphed against all odds. Farrenc’s Symphony recalls Brahms or Mendelssohn with a French touch, while Chaminade’s Concertino and Poulenc’s Sonata highlight the versatile flute playing of soloist in residence Emmanuel Pahud, one of the greatest virtuosos playing today. A young Debussy pays homage to the great French composers of his time.

Works: Debussy,  Petite suite (Büsser orchestration);
Cécile Chaminade,  Flute and orchestra concertino;
Poulenc,  Flute Sonata (Berkeley orchestration);
Louise Farrenc,  Symphony No. 1 in C minor

Yannick Nézet-Séguin, conductor; Emmanuel Pahud, flute (soloist in residence)
