Fun & Entertaining! Originally composed as Introduction et Rondeau pour Petite Flute, this work was awarded 1st Prize by the Conservatoire Royale de Liège , where Jean Gennin was a student. Gennin later revised the work so as to perform it with his brother, Pierre and the Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra. Our edition [with the solo and duet versions] is the first published edition of the sheet music. (a piano reduction is also available)
Notes: Jean Gennin and his brother Pierre were two of the early stars of British Broadcasting with their performances of Jean's works. They were for many years the flute section of the Bournemouth Orchestra and and enormously popular with audiences. Entertainers par excellence, they always included visual entertainment, such as staging mock sword fights with their flutes during bars rest!
Enjoy this SAMPLE of the performance by the composer and his brother, Pierre, recorded in 1930 by Columbia Records.
