PIPE Dreams

“Bezaly plays the solo parts with great sympathy for their idioms, phenomenal virtuosity, perfect intonation even in the highest register, and warm tone. Her warmth is matched by the soloists from within the Australian Chamber Orchestra...Altogether, the four atmospheric works and Bezaly's performances amount to an impressive demonstration of the possibilities of the flute... This disc is a must have for all flute enthusiasts and for lovers of sumptuous music that excites and thrills in equal measure” --BBC Music Magazine, February 2013 *****

Sharon Bezaly (flute)
Australian Chamber Orchestra, Richard Tognetti (artistic director & lead violin)

Sharon Bezaly here performs with the eminent Australian Chamber Orchestra and Richard Tognetti in a programme which takes its name from the Australian composer Carl Vine’s work for flute and orchestra.

Pitangus Sulphuratus from the Venzuelan composer Adina Izarra’s concerto – composed in 1987, but with a new cadenza written especially for Bezaly – depicts a yellow and brown bird found in the Caracas valley. Its call appears throughout the piece

The tango makes an almost dreamlike appearance in Flute Concerto with Tango, which José Serebrier has dedicated to Sharon Bezaly.

Impresiones de la Puna embodies the dream of an eighteen-year-old Alberto Ginastera to find a truly Argentinean musical language.
