Tune of the Day: Pan!
for Flute and Piano, by Johannes Donjon
This famous pastorale for Flute and Piano was written by Romantic flutist and composer Johannes Donjon (1893–1912). Born in Lyon, France, Donjon was a pupil of Jean-Louis Tulou, and served as principal flutist at the Paris Opéra. His compositions have found a secure place in the French flute repertoire; among these, “Pan” is probably his best-known piece.
