Sharon Bezaly and her golden flute present the third instalment of this alphabetical anthology of the literature for solo flute. On the first volume Sharon Bezaly juxtaposed contemporary Finnish composer Kalevi Aho with the immortal J.S. Bach. The next instalment let the unlikely combination of Boismortier and Elliott Carter shed light on each other's music. This third volume combines several newly written pieces for solo flute with classics of the repertoire by François Devienne and Claude Debussy. (Debussy's Syrinx is simply the most haunting of all works for solo flute and has to be heard as performed by Miss Bezaly!)
The programme has been recorded in multi-channel and released as a hybrid Super Audio-CD offering the possibility of Surround Sound for those with the necessary equipment. Sharon Bezaly was recently described as 'the greatest flautist of her generation' by a reviewer in the Italian magazine Musica.

“Chaque fois que je mets un CD de Sharon Bezaly dans mon lecteur, je frémis:
je sais d'avance que l'écoute en sera excitante… Une aventure multi-sensorielle. Un jeu de séduction entre l'oreille et l'âme, entre le son et le profond ressenti.” Pizzicato December 2004
