Format: Audio CD
Five HUGE Stars!! Virtuoso flautist Sharon Bezaly is one of the classical music world's true superstars as clearly demonstrated on this beautifully-recorded Hybrid SACD disc. If you haven't heard of this lady before, it's time to catch up to her wonderful art: blazing technique, a fleeting touch, burnished nuances, phenomenal breathing, and great respect for both the traditional and the new classical composers, all played on a specially-made 24-carat gold Muramatsu flute. How good is she? There are sections of this CD where you may not believe your ears!

The concept of "Bridge Across the Pynenees: Flute Concertos" is based on two concertos for flute from both sides of the Pynenees mountains which divide France and Spain: a flute concerto by Spain's Joaquin Rodrigo, a flute concerto by France's Jacques Ibert, and a fantasy by France's Francois Borne with Ms Bezaly beautifully complemented throughout by the wonderfully-inspired São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of the redoubtable John Neschling. To begin with, we have Joaquin Rodrigo's lyrical but technically demanding "Concierto pastora" which was composed for legendary flautist James Galway. "Pieces De Resistance" are the 'call and response' between the flute and brass during the Allegro, and the magical flute, oboe & clarinet exchanges during the Adagio, plus the stunning flute soliloquys. You can hear the birds and insects.

François Borne's "Fantaisie brillante sur des airs de Carmen" is based on Bizet's opera. Arranged for flute and orchestra by Giancarlo Chiaramello, it is AWESOME, especially with Sharon's brilliant doubling and tripling of the Carmen theme in seamless, 'smoking' runs.
