About

With her first Chandos recording, the scintillating flautist Katherine Bryan explores the relationship between her instrument and the human voice by providing a new take on some of the worlds most famous opera arias, from Mozarts Le nozze di Figaro and Puccinis Madama Butterfly to Gershwins Porgy and Bess.

Recorded in surround-sound, her rich and colourful interpretations are conducted by Bramwell Tovey, winner of Grammy and Juno awards, and accompanied by the Orchestra of Opera North, the leading opera company in the north of England, and therefore a perfect fit to the repertoire.

In her own words: My concept behind the disc is to show how close to the human voice the flute can be, and how, through the sound, I can convey the character and sentiments of the arias, pushing the boundaries of what the flute can do as a solo instrument.
