Idyll - The English Flute Unheard - MPR101Recorded in the beautiful acoustic of the Menuhin Hall in Surrey, this recording is a superb selection of music for Flute (mainly with Piano) by composers who either taught or studied at the Royal College of Music in London.  None of these works have been recorded commercially for this instrumentation. Composers include Richard Walthew, Cyril Bradley Rootham, Sir George Henschel, Robin Milford, Armstrong Gibbs, Norman Demuth, Stanley Bate, Leonard Salzedo and John White.

“Hugely enjoyable disc…the balance both tonally and emotionally between the two performers is finely managed…two soloists perfectly in tune with the repertoire…” British Music Society

 

“…beautifully played…these are two instinctive musicians who judge the pace of the music with sensitivity and intelligence…” British Flute Society    More >>
