Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Transparency, light, colours, tenderness, melancholy: all these come to mind when I try to pin down what I mean by "French impressions". 'With its gentle, rich, sensuous and vivid sound, the flute is for me the perfect instrument for this repertoire. 'I have long wanted to record the works assembled here in the company of my dear friends. I am delighted to present them to you now.' Juliette Hurel For her third recording on Zig-Zag Territoires, Juliette Hurel offers us a journey through the French masterpieces for flute of the first half of the twentieth century, including Poulenc's Flute Sonata, Debussy's Sonata for flute, viola and harp, Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and Syrinx, and Fauré's Read more Sicilienne and Berceuse.
