And these compositions feature a whole lotta flute.
I’m really diggin’ Beethoven.
The performers on this CD are:
Jean-Pierre Rampal flute
Alain Marion (1938-1998) flute
Paul Hongue bassoon
Robert Veyron-Lacrois (1922-1991) piano
The compositions on this CD are:
Serenade Op 41
6 Themes and Variations Op 105
Allegro and Minuet in G Wo026
Trio in G Wo037
Easily, this is one of my favorite Beethoven CDs. I love the flute and piano together.
The Scottish themes are wonderful, too. Much better than Haydn’s versions of them.
Before setting one note to ear, I thought I was going to like Haydn’s music, and dislike Beethoven’s.
The reality is exactly the opposite.
