Kamermuziek - Verschenen op 29 maart 2019 | Chandos
The flute takes a very special place in French music, particularly so in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. As a result (and in addition to a great deal of original repertoire for the instrument) there is a significant body of work transcribed for flute and piano, which Lisa Friend and Rohan De Silva explore in this exquisite programme. Fauré’s first Violin Sonata, composed in 1875-76 works particularly well in transcription, with is sweeping melodies and lack of doublestopping. The rapid scale passages in the third movement are especially effective. Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, based on a poem by Stéphane Mallarmé, is regarded by many (including Boulez) as the birthplace of modern music, Ravel choosing it to be played at his funeral. The original orchestral version opens with one of the bestknown flute solos in the repertoire, making this transcription particularly appropriate. © Chandos
Kamermuziek - Verschenen op 30 augustus 2019 | Chandos
Following her acclaimed recording of Mozart’s Flute Quartets with the Brodsky Quartet and her more recent disc of Fauré and Debussy, the flautist Lisa Friend continues her journey to explore another sound-world in this programme of works for flute and guitar(s). Spanning music from Brahms to Bellinati, the wide-ranging programme juxtaposes original compositions for these forces (Ibert’s Entr’acte, Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango) with arrangements – some of instrumental works (Brahms, Poulenc, Shostakovich) and some of vocal pieces (Donizetti, Rachmaninoff). Works for flute and guitar quartet are interspersed with more intimate pieces, for flute and solo guitar, which adds further variety to the programme. No mere accompanists, Craig Ogden and the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet play a significant role throughout. The end result is a fascinating and rewarding programme of delightfully listenable music. © Chandos
