Roz's notes: I selected these 8 duets for their fun-to-play quality. You can tell that they were composed by a flute player.

Josť Maria del Carmen Ribas [1796 - 1861] was born in Burgos, Spain. Contemporary with the flautists Drouet and Nicholson, Ribas was born on July 16th, 1796 in Burgos, the historic Castilian city, where his father worked as a regimental musician. With his fatherís tuition, the young Ribas learnt to play flute, oboe and clarinet before joining the regimental band as a clarinet player. He was taken prisoner by the French, rescued by the British and served under Wellington at the Battle of Toulouse. In 1825, after upsetting local officials, he went to London where he worked very successfully for 25 years, establishing himself as the leading flute player of his day and attracting Mendelssohn's particular praise for his playing of the Scherzo from A Midsummer Night's Dream. In 1845, he married the 17 year old daughter of his flutemaker, Robert Scott, and afterwards they lived for a while in Cheltenham. In 1851 he resigned from his London flute positions and returned to Portugal with his wife, who accompanied him in concerts and was introduced by him as 'his student'!
