Flute master Pahud comes to Istanbul
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Emannuel PahudBerlin Philharmonic Orchestra’s flautist Emannuel Pahud is coming to Istanbul to perform a concert on Dec. 20 and Dec. 21.
On Dec. 20, he will be on stage with Les Vents Français and pianist Eric Le Sage will perform on Dec. 20 at CRR. They will play pieces from Farrence, Rimsky-Korsakov and Thuille. On Dec. 21 Pahud will play with guitarist Christian Rivet at the Cemal Reşit Rey Saloon.
Being appointed as the principal flautist at the BPO signaled Pahud’s entrance into international spotlight.
He entered the orchestra during its rejuvenation period, as the post-war generation of players began to retire. His predecessor was Karlheinz Zöller. Apart from Pahud, other previous international flautists held the same principal flautist position such as Aurèle Nicolet (1950–59) and Sir James Galway (1969–75). He currently shares the position of Principal Flautist with Andreas Blau, who has held the position since 1969.
