Notes and Editorial Reviews

With this engaging yet undemanding recital of music for flute and guitar, Virginia Taylor and Timothy Kain offer a judiciously chosen programme of winningly uncerebral material, calculated to refresh even the most jaded ear. That this instrumental combination represents a happy combination of melodic charm and deeper expressive potential is evident from the Castelnuovo-Tedesco Sonatina, or the delightful alpine excursion of Napoleon Coste's Le Montagnard. Both of these make full use of the resources of the medium. The characteristic Aranjuez style of Rodrigo's Serenata al Alba del dia is an idiomatic evocation of dawn, which again summons a surprising wealth of effective imagery from the two instruments. The Spanish connection continues Read more with Ravel's Piece en forme de habanera, in an arrangement by Peter Segal of a popular work suitable, it would seem, for practically any combination, and certainly apt for flute and guitar.

Virginia Taylor's version of Debussy's Syrinx seems a shade hurried when one is certainly accustomed to greater languor and sensuality in this work but her delectable performance of Faure's celebrated ''Sicilienne'' from the incidental music for Pelleas et Melisande is particularly enjoyable, and her playing of the Honegger miniature, concerning the fate of a much-admired village goat, again has wit and brilliance. A particular highlight of the recital is Laurindo Almeida's arrangement of the delicate Tambourin by Gossec, with colourful drum-like accompaniments from Timothy Kain. While there is nothing remotely profound in this music it does offer an hour or so of totally agreeable entertainment, skilfully played and particularly well recorded.'

-- Michael Jameson, Gramophone [9/1992]
