About

Unaffected by changing eras and stylistic developments the combination of flute and guitar has had a particular appeal for composers from the Baroque age to the present. On their album “Crossings” Gregory and Jan Cimoszko present a colourful selection of works from different cultural backgrounds. Classical compositions like the Grand duo concertant in A major, op.85, by Maurio Giuliani, at that time one of the greatest guitar players, the Variations sur un Thème de Rossini by Frédéric Chopin or the Sonatina for flute and guitar, op.205, by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco provide evidence to the diversity of works written for this cast. Examples for music from the 20th century are the Entr’Acte by Jacques Ibert, the Fantaisie brillante sur lopéra “Carmen” de Bizet by François Borne and Historie du Tango, where Astor Piazzolla portrays the development of the Argentinian Tango.
