'The Song of the black Swan' by Heitor Villa-Lobos is the centrepiece of this attractive musical program for flute and harp, conceived around the topics of water, lake, ocean and rain.

Including the well known piece 'The Swan' from 'The Carnival of the Animals' by Camille Saint-Saëns, the album also features several songs in arrangements for flute and harp by composers such as Schubert and Mendelssohn. Another key work is Claude Debussy’s 'Syrinx', the first significant piece for solo flute after the Sonata in A minor composed by CPE Bach 150 years before (1763), and it is the first such solo composition for the modern Böhm flute, perfected in 1847.

Eva Oertle is also active as a presenter and music editor with Swiss Radio SRF2 Kultur.
