Notes & Reviews:

The turn of the century in 1900 was once called the golden age of the flute. And here, Hans-Udo Heinzmann introduces three works from this period together with his piano partner Elisaveta Blumina on his fourth GENUIN CD. Debussy's "Afternoon of a Fawn", perhaps the best-known flute work of all time, is supplemented by César Franck's brilliant Sonata in A major and the weighty, passionate and unjustly neglected Sonata by Joseph Jongens. These three pieces portray a universe in miniature, and Heinzmann allows his instrument to shine, cajole and shimmer in the French style, with all the clarity of the Mediterranean world!

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
These are two of the finest players recording repertory for flute and piano. The Franck sonata is powerful and breathtaking, with a slow movement that I found especially moving. I relished some exquisite pianissimo flute playing in the Jongen, which offers a wealth of atmosphere and inventiveness. Jongen certainly is worth hearing any time, as is the Debussy in this form. There is, of course, room in any collection for more than one recording of works such as these, and you must have one played this well. Count me among the listeners enchanted, as the title says, by Heinzmann and Blumina's artistry.
