Divertimento for flute and piano

By Françaix Jean

J. Françaix: Divertimento for Flute and Piano was written in 1953 and dedicated to Jean-Pierre Rampal. In 1974 it was orchestrated for flute and orchestra.  The two last movements of Divertimento are taken from the ballet Le Roi Nu (The Naked King), based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Emperor’s New Clothes.

Françaix Jean

Jean Françaix (1912-1997) was a French pianist and composer. He studied at the Paris Conservatory with Nadia Boulanger and was known for his vibrant style of composition. His earlier works were greatly influenced by Maurice Ravel who praised Françaix for his curiosity, ability to explore and constantly move forward. 

Françaix composed over 200  works from which the most profound work is L'Apocalypse de St Jean, the "fantastic oratorio" which was written with sense of approaching catastrophe (1939) and use of electric guitar which may reflect Françaix's idea of Hell.  Besides many compositions in neo-Classical style Françaix is also known for his orchestration of works by Chopin, Mozart, Schubert etc.
