Notes and Editorial Reviews

Considering only original compositions, the repertoire for flute and organ is not very large. The original pieces on this CD by Frank Martin, Franz Lachner and Thom Ritter-George, take into account the unusual sonority of the flute and organ combination. The pieces from Mozart, Karg-Elert and Svendsen are transcriptions of other works for flute and organ. Indeed, every flautist who is interested in adding duets for flute and organ to his or her repertoire is obliged to make transcriptions or arrangements of existing works. By performing both works that are original for their combination of instruments and selecting interesting works to transcribe, the duo Delafontaine-Jordan presents here a very individual program.
