'This  hugely enjoyable CD' - British Music Society

'This  CD  is  recorded  with  clarity  and  a  warm  tone 
quality;  the  instruments  are  always  well  balanced
and  both  performers  play  with  impressive  accuracy
and  conviction.  I  particularly  enjoyed  the  sense  of
simplicity  that  comes  across  in  this  recording;  that’s  

not  to  say  that  the  music  is  particularly  easy,  but  one 
has  the  sense  when  listening  that  the  music,  and  its
interpretation,  has  been  carefully  considered  and  is
presented  in  a  clear,  logical  way,  with  appropriate  ex- 
pressivity,  without  giving  in  to  overindulgence.  These
are  two  instinctive  musicians  who  judge  the  pacing  

and  expression  of  the  music  with  sensitivity  and  intel- 
ligence.  There  are  some  real  gems  amongst  the  rep- 
ertoire  here  which  deserve  to  be  better  known  with
contemporary  audiences;  well  worth  exploring.' 

Pan Magazine, The British Flute Society

This is my first chamber music recording for MPR. Recorded in the beautiful acoustic of the Menuhin Hall in Surrey, we have a superb selection of music for Flute (mainly with Piano) by composers who either taught or studied at the Royal College of Music in London. None of these works have been recorded commercially for this instrumentation. Composers are Richard Walthew, Cyril Bradley Rootham, Sir George Henschel, Robin Milford, Armstrong Gibbs, Norman Demuth, Stanley Bate, Leonard Salzedo and John White. All these works beautifully performed by James Dutton (Flute) and Oliver Davies (Piano) and recorded in 24/96 high definition by the peerless Tony Faulkner.
