Gergely Ittzés & Peter Nagy - The Great Book of Flute Sonatas, Vol. 4: Impressionism (2017)

Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 71:18 min | 294 MB
Label: Hungaroton | Tracks: 10 | Rls.date: 2017

Although Impressionism suits the flute very well, the greatest French masters did not compose sonatas for the instrument. On the fourth disc of the seven-volume series their followers, of various nationalities, will compensate for their absence, introducing the wide palette of colors of the pair of instruments. Ravel’s youthful sonata was composed for the violin but it can effectively be performed on the flute.

For the first volume of this series of seven albums, Gergely Ittzes has selected seven sonatas representative of the flute music of the 18th century. The works are played on modern flute but informed by authentic performance practice. Original obligato keyboard parts are played on piano while continuo realizations are performed on harpsichord. The players have aimed at an analytic, though spontaneous, rendition. Gergely Ittzes won several prizes and awards including the Aleksander Tansman International Competition of Musical Personalities. Alex Szilasi and Anthony Newman join Ittzes on the keyboards.
