During the early 80’s the Latin Jazz Combo “FONOPSIS” was the first of many bands to be born in the Sandoval brothers’ studio. After becoming a household name among the Jazz lovers in Colombia’s major cities through their appearances in Festivals and TV, they moved to Miami where they performed at a variety of venues and events. Many players have been a part of Fonopsis ever since, however Orlando Sandoval’s arrangements and musical direction haven been its constant and irreplaceable components.

This program features the Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano by Claude Bolling and a mix of original and jazz standards. Bolling recorded his Suite in 1973 with master flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal. In the Baroque era, a suite was an instrumental collection of dance movements. In this work, however, the term is used signifying an instrumental composition with several contrasting movements. There is also great fluctuation of mood within the movements of this Suite, caused by the constant dialogue between its jazz and classical elements.

Tonight’s program features some of the most beautiful and, at the same time, most demanding works for piano and flute. The Flute Sonata by Francis Poulenc was written in 1957. It is dedicated to the memory of Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, an American patron of chamber music. The Introduction and Variations for flute and piano (1824) uses the 18th song from Die schöne Müllerin (“Trockne Blumen”) as the basis for a set of variations. The Violin Sonata in A was written in 1886, when César Franck was 63, as a wedding present for the 31-year-old violinist Eugène Ysaÿe.
