The works featured in this recording were written by mature composers from the Romantic period. Through these pieces Robert Schumann, César Franck, and Reynaldo Hahn transcend nationalism and extravagance. Using beautiful melodies and compelling harmonies these three composers created works that express music at its highest level. Although there is a gap of almost forty years between each work, they are united by the fact that these composers, led by their own desire, chose to create a fresh and elegant contribution to the chamber music repertoire. Originally conceived for other instruments, these three works have been carefully transcribed for flute and piano. Although, Schumann’s Three Romances and Franck’s Sonata in A major have been adopted by flutists for quite some time, this is the first professional recording of Hahn’s Sonata in C major. All three works are performed in their original keys and no changes have been made in the piano score.
This CD has a great review by Flutist Quarterly!
