I reviewed the companion CD, "The Yearning, Romances for Alto Flute," so I thought I'd do this one too. They are similar and I have and enjoy both.
Like I said for the other one, only a few times in my life have I heard music that made me stop what I was doing and pay attention, but this is one of them. These two CD's, these two artists. The music is beautiful, wonderfully mellow, soulful, and passionate, with a deep feeling to it, and very relaxing. I've been listening often in the evenings for just that effect.
This is a very intimate recording, giving you the feeling of being there. You can occasionally hear the breathing of the flutist, and far from detracting from the recording, it enhances it.
All 11 songs on the CD are excellent. A very consistent performance. I wish there were a Vol. 3!
