Frisof, Sarah; Collins, Hannah; Pesca, Daniel

On "Beauty Crying Forth," flutist Sarah Frisof presents repertoire spanning one and half centuries for flute by female composers. Including music by Clara Schumann, Lili Boulanger, Kaija Saariaho, Tania León, Shulamit Ran, and Amy Williams, Frisof, with guests cellist Hannah Collins and pianist Daniel Pesca, charts two parallel lineages, the evolution of flute repertoire from the Romantic era to the current day, and the overlooked role of female composers in shaping that repertoire. Daniel Pesca writes: “The most frequently performed works in the duo repertoire for flute and piano, as in all classical music, are by male composers. This record is intended to help correct this imbalance. In designing it, Sarah and I made the decision to include composers of a variety of eras, nationalities, and musical styles. The pieces included date from 1853 to 2014, and are written by composers born in Israel, Cuba, Finland, and elsewhere. This survey encompasses works of forthright lyricism and meditative, fragile sonic landscapes; both aphoristic works and those with broad dramatic sweep.”
