Notes & Reviews:

Avie continues its series of recordings featuring principal players of the New York Philharmonic! Joined by fellow Philharmonic player Jonathan Feldman, the Quebec-born Langevin gives flawless performances of three staples of the flute repertory. Though the Sonatas by Fauré, Franck, and Pierné were all originally written for violin, the composers sanctioned the adaptations for flute, which fit the instrument perfectly. Langevin studied in his native Quebec and in Europe. Prior to joining the New York Philharmonic in 2000, he was principal flute of the Pittsburgh Symphony and the Montreal Symphony, with whom he can be heard on over 30 recordings.

"Dazzling performance ... beautiful solo playing."- New York Times
