Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fourteen classic works including favorites such as 'Clair de Lune' by Debussy and 'Berceuse' by Fauré. Tender and sensitive performances by world-renown British flautist Philippa Davies, accompanied by Thelma Owen's masterful harp.

"Highly recommended for a late summer evening... effectively intersperses harp solos with music in which the flute takes leading role... most sensitive playing... programme very well-chosen." -- Penguin Guide 3 stars
