Works For Flute And Piano
Format: COMPACT DISC
Wiek, Florian; Fassbender, Christina
This release presents a programme of chamber music for flute and piano from the last third of the 19th century and the early 20th century. With the exception of Max Reger and possibly Carl Reinecke, the composers of these works may not be familiar to the modern-day music lover, for their names have unjustly been forgotten: Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Emil Kronke, and Carl Fruhling. All these composers except Fruhling are associated with the musical city of Leipzig. Christina Fassbender studied with Professor Jean-Claude Gerard in Stuttgart and with Professor Michael Martin Kofler at the Mozarteum University of Salzburg. Florian Wiek has made a name for himself through international concert engagements that have taken him to numerous festivals and concert halls.
