Claude Debussy (1862 - 1918)


A relatively late work, Syrinx was written in 1913 as incidental music to Gabriel Mourey's three-act dramatic poem Psyche. Syrinx was a nymph who was transformed into a reed and cut up to form Pan's famous set of pipes, and the solo flute music accompanied the scene of Pan's last melody before his death.

It was originally titled "Flūte de Pan," and depicts the final song and death of the god. In its brief span it offers the flutist lovely opportunities for expressive coloration and seamless phrasing.
