The Song of the black Swan” by Heitor Villa-Lobos is the centrepiece of this attractive musical program for flute and harp is conceived around the topics of “water”, “lake”, “ocean” & “rain”. Including the well known piece, “The Swan” from “The Carnival of the Animals” (« Le carnaval des animaux ») by Camille Saint-Saëns, the album features also several songs in arrangements for flute and harp by composers such as Schubert & Mendelssohn. Another key work is Claude Debussy’s “Syrinx”, the first significant piece for solo flute after the Sonata in A minor composed by C. P. E. Bach 150 years before (1763), and it is the first such solo composition for the modern Böhm flute, perfected in 1847.
