Entr'acte: Music for Flute & Guitar

Entr'acte: Music for Flute & Guitar album cover
Format: CD & Digital download
Label: Cambridge Recordings
Release date: April 2013
Catalogue no: CAMREC005

The combination of flute and guitar has been described as enchanting and beautiful and this is surely demonstrated by the works featured on this recording. The Ramirez guitar is stylistically acceptable as a continuo instrument in the early works by Blavet and Rameau but it is perhaps in the other compositions where the combination of the two instruments brings a different perspective on well-known pieces.

Performed by Adam Pounds (conductor) & Dinah Pounds (flute)

Format: CD
Label: Red Priest Recordings
Release date: October 2012
Catalogue no: RPO10

Re-release of the 1999 Upbeat Classics disc of the same name. "An appealing disc full of vigorous character and ideas, not to say stunning virtuosity." - Classic FM Magazine (Recording of the Month, December 1999)

"Piers Adams demonstrates superbly just how varied composers' responses have been to the unusual combination and how often they have written beautiful movements that stand comparison with any modern wind and piano sonatas. Adams and Rhodes play with superb rapport and find all kinds of different expressive characters for the very different pieces. This CD is a delight." - Classic CD Magazine

Performed by Piers Adams (recorder) & Julian Rhodes (piano)

Julian Bream in Concerto

Julian Bream in Concerto album cover
Format: CD
Label: Alto
Release date: February 2012
Catalogue no: ALC1174

Julian Bream does everything, it goes without saying emotional depth is in the second movement of the Arnold, the slow movement - a threnody for Django Reinhardt - most imaginative. This concerto was written for Julian Bream and he plays it magnificently, as do the Melos Ensemble. The recording is first-rate - clear but not at all clinical ... The Giuliani demonstrates Bream's technique and musicianship (Gramophone). Berkeley: Sonatina - an enjoyably amiable piece; Ravel: Pavane - very relaxed account; Roussel: Segovia - a characteristic touch of acerbity; the two sonatas of Cimarosa both very personable (Penguin Guide).

Performed by Julian Bream (guitar)
