CD: Debussy and Respighi Violin Sonatas transcribed for Flute and Piano
This CD, with its ardor for the 19th-century and the beginning of the 20th-century music, reimagines the music for violin and piano of Claude Debussy and Ottorino Respighi, expanding it into the repertoire of the modern flute. The recording was made in the Summer of 2016 at Oktaven Studios, New York City.
