about this recording:
The flute may be considered one of the most important solo instruments in the music of the 20th century. Yet the broad flute repertory with contributions of nearly all well-known composers of the epoch, from Debussy to Denissow, has remained almost unknown to the public. This recording may help to make the manifold and colourful flute literature of the 20th century accessible to a wider audience.
