 Update me on new releases by Gaubert

Philippe Gaubert (7/05/1879 - 7/08/1941)

Born into a musical family, his father being an amateur clarinettist, Gaubert initially studied the violin; but at the age of seven, at his own request, he started to learn the flute after his family had moved to Paris. His first lessons were with Jules Taffanel, father of the distinguished flautist Paul Taffanel, but in 1890, impressed by his undoubted talent, Jules persuaded Paul to take the boy on as a pupil. He entered the Paris Conservatoire when Taffanel became professor of flute there in 1893, also studying harmony with Pugno and Leroux and composition with Lenepveu. Having won the first prize for flute playing in 1894, in 1897 Gaubert became a member of the orchestras of the Paris Opera and of the Paris Conservatoire, swiftly achieving fame as a soloist. He continued to work closely with Taffanel, whose most distinguished pupil he was to be, and, after Taffanel’s death in 1908 he collaborated with Lois Fleury in completing a history and method of flute playing which remains a standard text.
