This recording contains forgotten gems for flute and piano from the 20th century in a huge variety of styles, which have never been commercially recorded, and includes two works for solo flute. All the composers and the performers were associated with the Royal College of Music, either as teachers or students. Better known names include Cecil Armstrong Gibbs and Leonard Salzedo with lesser known but by no means lesser composers including Stanley Bate, Norman Demuth, Sir George Henschel, Robin Milford, Cyril Rootham, Richard Walthew and John White. The recording also demonstrates the influence of the French school of flute playing in the 20th century and these excellent and sensitive performances have been beautifully captured in the lovely acoustic of the Yehudi Menuhin Hall by recording engineer Tony Faulkner and producer Mike Purton.
