A terrific collection of flute music. Album of the Weekend, 18-19 January 2014.
Anna Stokes and Lisa Friend are superb flautists and here they turn their attention to predominately French repertoire, including Saint-Saens and Faure's popular choral piece, Cantique de Jean Racine, arranged here for flutes.
Away from Europe, there's an arrangement here by the two players of Piazzolla’s Oblivion, as well as pieces by Carl Joachim Andersen, a 19th century Danish flute virtuoso.
All in all a charming collection, beautifully played and recorded.
