Notes & Reviews:

This dazzling collection of flute music demonstrates the powerful individualism of contemporary Greek composers. It ranges widely, from the dirge that incorporates folk material in Theodore Antoniou's Lament for Michelle, to the use of ancient Greek modes in Giorgos Couroupos's Elégie. Dimitri Terzakis employs micro-intervals to sonically fascinating effect in Zwei Märchen, whilst Yannis Ioannidis explores extremes of dynamics and registers in Fragmento II, a powerful example of the vitality and variety to be found in all these compositions.Established in 1993 in Greece, the German flautist Katrin Zenz plays a central rôle in the performance of contemporary Greek flute music. Her research in the use of extended techniques has brought her into close contact with many composers and subsequently a number of works have been dedicated to her.

American Record Guide
Zenz has a very full sound that is picked up beautifully; she plays everything solidly and with great authority. Her alto flute playing is among the best I've heard, and she skillfully executes some demanding multiphonics (heard most clearly in the Tsangaris).

The Northern Echo
Flautist Katrin Zenz fronts a CD dazzling collection of flute music, demonstrating the powerful individuality of contemporary Greek composers. It ranges widely, from the dirge that incorporates folk material in Theodore Antoniou's Lament for Michelle, to the use of ancient Greek modes in Giorgos Couroupo's Elegie.
