    We just performed these pieces in two concerts as a flute, cello, piano trio. The rehearsal process was slowed down by inconsistencies in the form of dropped accidentals in the flute (violin) part, unmarked clef changes in the cello, which resulted in very unstylistic clashes with the piano. The piano...

    part had missing accidentals as well. I recommend that the piano not double the cello or the flute/violin part in some passages: the counterpoint will come out better that way. As a composition, it promises more than it delivers: openings are attention catching in all three pieces, but then the composer seems to lose momentum after a few pages. Some moments owe a lot to Franck and Chausson, but they never quite take off. The last movement’s end is extremely weak, so decided to re-write it to bring a more satisfting conclusion to the set. The piano part is physically comfortable, the flute writing ok, but not idiomatic (maybe it sounds better on a violin). Cello part is ok.

    Thank to an american editor this music is not lost! Excellent music close to Fauré's, typical french music from the beginning of the 20th century.If the term existed I would call it impressionist music. Gaubert was a great composer for flute music, but not only. He should be...

    much more known. For our concert-we are professional musicians-we also include "pièce romantique" a very pleasant piece of music. The complete works with flute have been recorded with NAXOS.
