The two Sonatines by Sancan and Dutilleux were both born in the Nineteen-Forties by Claude Delvincourt committee, director of the Conservatory, who wanted to provide flute students with a contemporary repertoire for their diploma essays. And both had an unpredictable and lasting success. The Sonata by Poulenc, written between 1956 and 1957, is one of the most famous works of chamber music by the author, contemporary to the writing of the Dialogues de carmélites. The elegant Sonate en concert of 1952 by Damase, – composer who, among many awards, also won the Prix de Rome, – is built as a succession of dances which remind of a Baroque Suite, but belongs to the twentieth century music. Finally, the Chansons madécasses of 1925: in contrast with the expansionary thrust of that period, Ravel was impressed by the costumes of the indigenous population of Madagascar narrated in Évariste de Parny poems, and he wanted to exalt their virtues in an anti-colonialist way. With this articulate and not at all ordinary programme- in the marvellous location of the Oratory of San Crescentino which was admirably frescoed by Luca Signorelli – four young emerging talents test themselves with this concert, as traditionally do the winners of the Burri Prize of last edition.
