Emmanuel Pahud

Australian Chamber Orchestra

Emmanuel Pahud

The world’s greatest living flautist Emmanuel Pahud is back! Twelve years after his Australian debut, one of Richard Tognetti’s great musical friends returns to perform with the ACO. Pahud currently divides his time between his Principal Flute position at the Berlin Philharmonic and touring the world as a soloist.

This program is like an historical adventure – tracing the Franco-Germanic lineage from Bach senior, to his son Carl Philipp Emanuel, through to Franck, Debussy, Ravel and Boulez.

And it gives our soloist an opportunity to stand alone in the spotlight with CPE Bach’s Flute Sonata, a stunning example of the composer’s genius, and Debussy’s Syrinx, which may well be the greatest solo flute piece of all time.

Ravel’s String Quartet, composed at the very beginning of the 20th century, is brimming with seductive melodies, iridescent pizzicato passages, colourful trill effects and luscious harmonies. Franck’s great Violin Sonata, arranged here for flute and strings by Richard Tognetti, is testament to Franck’s influence over such composers as Ravel, Debussy and Boulez.
