Notes and Editorial Reviews

What could be lighter, more French, than a CD with romantic flute and piano music? The flutist Atsuko Koga and the pianist Mayuko Miyata play works by the great composers Charles-Marie Widor, Jules Massenet, Charles Gounod and Franz Schubert, but also discoveries by Philippe Gaubert and François Borne, presenting the abilities of those internationally successful soloists in the very best light. Koga´s playing is notable for its soulful tone and breathtaking virtuosity, blending together perfectly with the piano sound of Mayuko Miyata – quel bonheur!
