Fantaisie Op. 79 was originally composed for flute and piano by French composer Gabriel Faure. The Fantaisie was commissioned by and dedicated to Paul Taffanel in 1898 for the “Concours de flute”, a flute competition held by the Conservatoire de Paris. Although performed as one single movement, Fantaisie can clear be divided into individual sections. A slow opening section that uses ideas from Fauré’s incidental music to Pelléas et Mélisande, Op. 80, written at the same time, followed by a faster second section. Faure stated a performance of the piece should last for no longer than 4 minutes, 30 second.

This arrangement for flute and strings stays true to Faure’s original score for flute and piano. Adapted flutes parts for clarinet and bassoon are also available too.
