Music

Today Mouquet is best known for "La Flûte de Pan" for flute and orchestra, and for an arrangement of it, the Sonata for flute and piano, Op. 15. During the sonata’s three movements, the cloven-hoofed Pan, the Greek god of sheperds and their flocks, is heard playing his flute in amorous serenades and lively peasant dances."

Life

Jules Mouquet (1867-1946) studied composition with Theodore Dubois at the Paris Conservatory and joined its faculty in 1913 as a professor of harmony. Like Debussy and many other French composers at the turn of the century, Mouquet favored subjects from Greek mythology, as a sort of neoclassical reaction against the fervent treatments of Norse legend in Wagner’s operas. This figures prominently in his compositions.
