Syrinx was composed as incidental music for Act III of Psyché, a dramatic poem in three acts by Gabriel Monrey, and first performed by flutist Louis Fleury (to whom it is dedicated) on December 1st, 1913. Originally entitled Flûte de Pan, the piece was published in 1927 under its actual name. In Greek mythology Pan, the half-goat/half-man god of shepherds was pursuing the nymph Syrinx, who fled to a river and begged the nymphs there for help. She was allowed to conceal herself by taking the form of a reed-bed from which Pan subsequently picked the reeds to fashion his pipes. In keeping with its mythology the Syrinx has always had a strongly pastoral connotation. Many musical historians believe that Syrinx, which gives the performer generous room for interpretation and emotion, played a pivotal role in the development of solo flute music in the early twentieth century.
