Description: The two least-recorded composers here are Grandval, whose suite dates from 1872 and which became a favorite recital piece of the esteemed flutist Paul Taffanel, and Holmès’ 1896 pieces, two of which have the flavor of her Celtic ancestry. Juliette Hurel (flute), Hélène Couvert (piano).
