Serenades & Sonatas for Flute and Harp (CD)

Current Stock:
Suzanne Shulman, Erica Goodman

This programme has been nurtured from a selection of pieces inspired by English gardens, including Vaughan Williams’ lovely Fantasia on Greensleeves, spreading out towards French and Italian repertoire that evokes pastoral settings of birdsong, fountains and springs, and topped with a light-hearted musical picnic dessert. Along the way we are treated to the exquisite melody of Elgar’s Chanson de matin and the nostalgic atmosphere of William Alwyn’s Naiades. Nino Rota’s film music credits include The Godfather, and his sublime and festive Sonata adds a celebratory touch to the personal joy of these performers’ many years of musical friendship.
