I am proud and happy to announce the release of my newest CD, a project realized together with my great colleague and friend, pianist Alessandro Soccorsi.
The CD features French music that is hardly known by the larger public and is yet from the highest quality. The era of the ‘Harlequin Years’ (a.o.: Groupe des Six), is presented in its historical context and is therefore preceded and followed by works that date from before and after.
Une Flûte dans les vergers, by Pierre de Brevile a spectacular example of the ‘old style’, is a CD world première. Other CD premières are Honegger’s Vocalise-Etude and Harsanyi’s 3 Pièces for Piano et Flûte. Very few shall know the Flute Sonata by George Antheil, that has been recorded before only once…
I fell in love with every single one of these pieces and I hope so will you!
