So you say flute is only meant to be heard in a fuddy-duddy salon? Or best played only by girls fresh from finishing school or for reproducing bird twitter? If part of you still clings to these clichés about the flute, the only cure is to buy the newly released GENUIN classics CD “Grand Sonatas” for flute and piano featuring the fabulous duo of Hans-Udo Heinzmann (flute) and Elisaveta Blumina (piano). If the recording were on film, it could be called “high cinematic drama.” Even without moving pictures, the performances are suitable for a spacious concert hall with a soft, full-bodied sound which cherishes the very finest details of the endless colors found in these grand sonatas by Pierné, Prokofiev and Gade. We can promise you’ll be whistling the melodies for days after hearing this CD!

"The duo goes about its performance with tremendous passion, astonishing technique and depth of feeling!"
