Notes and Editorial Reviews

In flute playing French music and its performing style are crucial. We gain a taste of this on the third disc of the seven- volume series that surveys more than a century and a half. Central to this is the turn of the century, which brought a new golden age of the flute in Paris. The characteristic pastoral voices, playfulness and melancholy of the period are complemented by the dramatic energy of the instrument, thanks to Pierne´. A graduate of the Budapest Liszt Academy of Music, Gergely Ittzes is one of the most proactive personalities of the flute scene. While being a researcher of his instrument and composer of many experimental flute works applying the most up to date flute techniques, especially polyphonic playing, he does not Read more specialize in contemporary music only, but tries to connect it with tradition. His large repertoire includes all the important works written for his instrument and a great number of rarities from the past centuries and today. In addition to classical and modern music, several other styles have also influenced his musical idiom, like jazz and free improvisation. Read less
