Karg-Elert occupies a remarkable niche in the history of German music. He is best known for his compositions for organ and harmonium, but this first recording of his complete works for flute reveals a completely individual voice.

The ground-breaking Sonata in B flat, Op.121 stretches virtuosity to the instrumentís limits, the Suite pointillistique is exquisitely colourful and the Sonata appassionata romantically expressive.

Each work, not least the challenging Caprices, reflects Karg-Elertís kaleidoscopic imagination, and represents a significant body of music for the flute in the twentieth century.
