Morceau de Concours

Morceau de Concours was written for a sight-reading competition at the Paris Conservatoire. The title was invented for the recently published edition and is not Fauré’s own. The manuscript is simply headed ‘Flûte-Concours 1898’ and signed with the date 14th July, possible Fauré’s celebration of Bastille Day.
