Ravel - Pavane pour une infante defunte for 4 flutes
Transcription: Erik Norby Duration: 6 min.
On the occasion of the Kuhlau Quartet´s 10th anniversary in 1983, the Danich composer Erik Norby orchestrated Maurice Ravels´s famous “Pavane” for flute quartet (two C-flutes, alto flute and a bass flute.) Because of Erik Norby’s great orchestration ability and vivid perception for Ravel´s music, this seemingly impossible task was brilliant solved by him in 1985. In its new form the “Pavane” became a success both as far as the audience and music critics were concerned.
