PCM 06 - Martinu, Dutilleux, Prokofiev

BBC PROMS CHAMBER MUSIC 2011

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Catherine Bott

The internationally renowned flautist Emmanuel Pahud is a featured artist at this year's Proms, and he brings a chamber programme to Cadogan Hall with his regular pianist, Eric Le Sage.

Three contrasting works share the same genesis, all being composed in the early 1940s under the shadow of World War II, but all have a sunny nature. Martinu's sonorous work was completed in America after he fled his native Czechoslovakia, and it has a seriousness at its core. Prokofiev's magnificent sonata was written in Moscow, and is one of his classic works - both brilliantly virtuosic and warmly lyrical. Dutilleux's Sonatine, an early work in his long and disinguished career, follows in the footsteps of his predecessor Debussy.

Martinu: Flute Sonata
Henri Dutilleux: Sonatine
