The first of the Two Pieces for flute and harp or piano accompaniment, “1. The swans” is a lovely short piece composed by Henri Busser. Really melodious, this piece is perfect to work on the flexibility of the tone and a good training to be able execute pieces more difficult. Written mainly in A key, not often used by flutists, and starting Andantino moderato, the piece symbolizes the swans, riding on a lake. It features an intro, a main theme in [A] which comes back A tempo in [C] and a final Piú moderato, finishing with a really high trill. Some difficulties, such as the A key and the range used on this piece will require an intermediate technique: difficulty is rated at 5. This first piece is followed by the second one: “The squirrels.” Henri Busser (1872-1913) is a French classical composer and organist. He was a professor at the Paris Conservatoire and a member of the Académie française. He wrote a ballet, numerous operas and chamber music.
