“Pahud’s virtues: musical grace, technical assurance and, most striking of all, a tone at once plangent and warm.” (The Washington Post)… “A ravishing listening experience… (playing that) quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity.” (Gramophone)
“Perhaps the most elegant of today’s young pianists.” (The New Yorker)… “an ease, precision and beauty so seemingly effortless that the music appeared to live and breathe of its own volition.” (The New York Times)
The acclaimed soloist, chamber musician and principal flutist of the Berlin Philharmonic pairs with the splendid pianist in a program of two masterpieces of the flute repertoire in the Poulenc and Bach sonatas, plus Pahud’s own transcriptions of sonatas for arpeggione (now primarily played on cello) and violin.
Emmanuel Pahud, flute
Alessio Bax, piano
