Notes and Editorial Reviews

The brilliant Cavatina Duo (Spanish flautist, Eugenia Moliner and Bosnian guitarist Denis Azabagic) offer a new release of baroque masterpieces: Telemann's 12 Fantasies, and French virtuoso Marin Marais' spectacular variations on "Folies d'Espagne". Described by Gramophone as "relentlessly mellifluous" and by Grammy-winning producer and leading guitarist David Starobin as "simply the finest flute-guitar duo on the planet", the Cavatina Duo offer a recording for our times: music at once heartbreaking and uplifting. Dedicated soloists and chamber musicians, the Cavatina Duo breaks convention with their combination of instruments. Add to that their daring choices of varied and versatile repertoire, and the result Read more is new sounds, colors and musical phrasings, which in return awakens a high level of emotion and audience response. A Cavatina Duo concert is a musical experience you don’t want to miss. Read less
