Notes & Reviews:

With this CD, containing works by Debussy, Ibert, Poulenc, Ferroud, Jolivet and Messiaen, the listeners are invited to embark on a fascinating journey through French music of the first half of the 20th century, inspired by mythology, nature, life, and - most of all - by the rich palette of flute colours. These works are the staple of every concert flutist's repertoire and they bear testimony to French composers' great admiration for that instrument.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
There is a sizable booklet with text in Polish and English and small photographs of both the flutist and pianist in black dresses. The pianist is captured in a marvelous pose where she looks sexy without even trying. That image is also worth the price of admission.
