"My favourite piece on this Digital CD would have to be the Fantasie by Fauré as I frequently play it myself. This collection of marvelous French flute pieces is spectacular and I thoroughly enjoy listening to it. Susan Milan has the most amazing soft playing, but can also be very strong. Her vibrato is the most immense I've ever heard. And Ian Brown, well where do I start? The guy's a genius. The way he tickles the keys giving off a smooth and delicate sound, always in time. This is a definite 5 star rating." - Stephen O'Donnell
