It’s rare for the kiss of the muses to reach us in such pure and unadulterated form as it does on this CD featuring treasures for flute and guitar. On their GENUIN debut release, Noemi Gyori (flute) and Katalin Koltai (guitar) present above all their own arrangements of classical works: originally written for piano, these pieces by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven flow so clearly and naturally from the speakers that the Viennese composers seem to have been mistaken in their choice of instrument . . . A true dialogue emerges from the dynamic conversation between the beautifully carved melodies in the flute and the crystal-clear timbres in the guitar. If only this joy of listening would never end!

"The freshness of the interpretations makes these finely executed arrangements a real pleasure. (...) Giulinini’s Grand Duo Concertant is played elegantly, fluently and with irresistible charm."
review by Norbert Tischer in Pizzicato April 25, 2019

"The present record of musicians Noemi Gyori (flute) and Katalin Koltai (guitar) proves impressively, that meticulousness, perseverance and childlike enthusiasm can be extremely profitable. Because these parameters ensure that with Transforming Traditions we are holding an album with a 'Wow!' Factor in our hands... The works selected here by Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven have never been heard interpreted on flute and guitar. The 'transformed traditions' present themselves spectacular (Haydn), dramatic (Mozart) and monumental (Beethoven). Between the charming lines of the flute and the clear timbres of the guitar, a genuine dialogue develops. But what one hears especially is the childlike enthusiasm. Wow!"

Grey Panthers
"... an extravagant, enthusiastic initiative to share the emotions and fantasies aroused in a virtuoso and non-conformist flutist—and in her accomplice, on the guitar and in the transcription work, Katalin Koltai ..."
