Notes and Editorial Reviews

Flauto Brillante is a record filled with flute music of Romantic composers (Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Anton Reicha, Friedrich Kuhlau, Carl Maria von Weber) performed in a breathtaking manner by Magdalena Pilch (Romantic traverso flute), Marek Pilch (square piano) and Bartosz Kokosza (cello) – artists who specialize in performing early music. The title of the record emphasizes the role of the flute in the repertoire, while at the same time makes references to the brillante style, which developed in piano music in the first half of the 19th century. Its distinguishable features can be found in the works presented on this record, which are full of masterly figurations and passages. The album was recorded on the replicas of historical instruments: Read more a transverse flute (Wilhelm Liebel, Dresden c. 1830), a cello (Antonio Stradivari, Cremona 1701) and a square piano, renovated for the needs of this recording (Pehr Rosenwall, Stockholm c. 1840).
