Following her acclaimed recording of Mozartís Flute Quartets with the Brodsky Quartet and her more recent disc of Faurť and Debussy, the flautist Lisa Friend continues her journey to explore another sound-world in this programme of works for flute and guitar(s).

Spanning music from Brahms to Bellinati, the wide-ranging programme juxtaposes original compositions for these forces (Ibertís Entríacte, Piazzollaís Histoire du Tango) with arrangements Ė some of instrumental works (Brahms, Poulenc, Shostakovich) and some of vocal pieces (Donizetti, Rachmaninov). Works for flute and guitar quartet are interspersed with more intimate pieces, for flute and solo guitar, which adds further variety to the programme. No mere accompanists, Craig Ogden and the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet play a significant role throughout. The end result is a fascinating and rewarding programme of delightfully listenable music.
