Notes & Reviews:

Christopher Hyde-Smith and Jane Dodd, begun their regular musical partnership in 1984. The following year they were asked to play the complete works for flute and keyboard of Bach and Handel as part of the City of London Celebrations for the Tercentenary of the birth of these two composers. It seems appropriate, therefore, that their first record together should include three contrasted works of Hath coupled with a Sonata by Handel and one by Telemann who was four years their senior. This husband and wife team has received critical acclaim for its concerts throughout the British Isles, France and Austria. Such comments have been:- "The pair produced an evening of unforgettable music making." "They immediately established a close rapport with the large audience." "By their accomplished, tasteful playing and by the charm and wit of their introductions they consistently commanded the attention of the near capacity audience. The Duo's repertoire includes not only baroque music but also the rich and varied flute and piano repertoire, including the ''Mozart Flute Quartets'' (CR36103-2). Their next record to be issued will be "Flute Music of France" (CR3808-2) to include music by Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Poulenc and Roussel and some shorter gems never previously recorded.
