Notes & Reviews:

Italian composer Giacinto Scelsi (1905-1988) was one of the most interesting composers of the Avant Garde. Experimenting with sounds and timbres, he sometimes composed pieces based around only one pitch, subjecting it to extreme dynamic and timbre changes and micro-oscillations. This recording presents all of Scelsi's works in which flute is the featured instrument. The flute brilliantly displays the compositional intentions of Scelsi, with its ethereal tone and capabilities for infinite pitch gradiations. Claudia Giottoli is the featured flutist on this album. One of the leading flutists in Italy, she has won several competitions, and specializes in contemporary repertoire and pieces with extended techniques. Raffaele D'Aniello, Paulo Puliti, Leonardo Ramadori, and Natalia Benedetti accompany her on piano, oboe, percussion, and clarinet, respectively.

The Guardian, 11th February 2016
Dauntless performances from Claudia Giottoli, who makes a big, breathy, wholesome kind of sound on the flute - playing in which the percussive noise of finger hitting keypad is as audible as any note. I like the physicality and the voluptuousness of it: it feels real, not too manicured and exactly right for a composer who was obsessed by the holistic nature of tone.
