Flute Sonata by Francis Poulenc: II. Cantilena
Today we celebrate the birthday of Francis Poulenc with a recording of the beautiful second movement from his Flute Sonata. A member of the composer collective Les Six, Poulenc was an active composer in the beginning of the 20th century. This second movement is representative of his style that is reminiscent of romanticism but written for the 1900s.
Morgan Monty, the flutist on this recording, is a first-year Bachelor of Music student in flute performance at the University of South Carolina from Charleston, SC.
Performed by Morgan Monty, flute and Winifred Goodwin, piano.
