The works on this beautiful recording are transcriptions for flute and piano of Franz Schubert masterpieces, from Heidenröslen, a lied he composed as a fresh-faced 17-year- old, to Ständchen, written just prior to his premature death at the age of 31. The exquisite and expressive playing of flutist Nadia Labrie and pianist Mathieu Gaudet is seductive. ""I have always found this music inspiring, so I wanted to perform a flute and piano version of some of my favourites. Schuberts music is so uplifting, so inspiring, so passionate it taps into the soul, the voice, the breath of life.
