Performances of music by Jean-Michel Damase.

Trio pour flûte, hautbois et piano​​

Impromptu Duo

A complete performance of one of the most popular of Damase's chamber works. Recorded at the National Flute Association's 2011 convention.

Sérénade pour flûte et orchestre à cordes

Jean-Pierre Rampal, flute

Written at the request of Rampal, who asked for a brilliant virtuoso finale; so Damase, a close friend, wrote him a calm, quiet one instead.​

Rhapsodie de printemps pour piano et orchestre

Jean-Michel Damase; piano​

A rare recording of this delightful and very demanding concertante work for piano and orchestra.

Sonatine pour deux harpes – Presto

Ieuan Jones, harp

Emanuela Degli Esposti, harp

 

A brilliant performance of the final movement of this very demanding work. Ieuan Jones is the dedicatee of other works by Damase.

 

Drominiana pour piano à 4 mains​​

Akika Watanabe, Saeko Ueda; piano​

Tremendously enjoyable work in three movements. Broadly, they are jazzy, lyrical, and exciting and polyrhythmic.
