Francis Poulenc: Sonata FP 164 With Emmanuel Pahud Playing Flute
Be charmed into listening
Born into a wealthy family who made their wealth in pharmaceuticals, Poulenc had to battle to become a musician. An enchanting melody entices the listener into this work, before more descriptive and playful passages occur. The back and forth between these two styles is a contrasting yet very pleasant listen. Listen and be glad that Poulenc’s battle was won.
