Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Here is an attractive programme, and though it comes from Berlin it reminds us that many composers for flute have either been French or at any rate resided in Paris, always a congenial city for flautists. The Carmen Fantasy by Francois Borne is an attractive salon piece . . . . The familiar (but more subtle) Ravel, Roussel and Debussy miniatures are no less successful (the latter is particularly good), as is the pair of pieces by Enescu and the Faure Fantaisie . . . . More substantial music comes in the Ballade by Frank Martin (later orchestrated but here played in its original form) and Jolivet's imaginative Chant de Linos, written in 1944 and intended to suggest an incantatory lament as of ancient Greece . . . . Irena Grafenauer's tone Read more is well varied, and . . . these performances are well managed." -- Christopher Headington, Gramophone Read less
