An intercourse between European and Japanese flute music featuring:

  • JS Bach, Clerambault, Couperin, Greg Dikmans, Jacob van Eyck, Hans-Martin Linde, Anne Norman, Vivaldi.

Reviews

"...a most compelling and intense experience... This is a recording to create Peace... there is so much to appreciate in the delicacy, subtlety and sheer magic." Recorder & Early Music.

"I highly recommend this CD to anyone with a penchant for the mystical, the unusual and the unexpected. The performances are first rate." Journal of the Australian Flute Association.

"The measure of the success of this recording is that it leaves one listening not just to the musical works themselves but to those further and more distant musics of the spheres." Ruth Wilkinson, Recorder and Early Music
