About this event

Featured artist Emmanuel Pahud returns with his regular accompanist for a recital of pieces composed in the 1940s.

Martinů's amiable work plumbs unexpected depths in its central core, while the Prokofiev Sonata's delightfully sunny nature makes it an ideal vehicle for the brilliant sparkle of the flute.

In between comes the Sonatine by Dutilleux, here at his most pastoral and Debussyan, carrying the flag for the Paris Conservatoire tradition of commissioning new scores for its final examinations.

There will be no interval
