Notes & Reviews:

This CD marks the 20th anniversary of the Swiss Flute Octet, 'Les Jouers de Flute.' They have performed to an enthusiastic reception both on concert stages and on radio and television, in Switzerland, Germany, Poland, the United States and Japan. The ensemble's range of instruments is unique: 25 transverse flutes of all sizes including such rarities as soprano flutes in F, the 'flauti d'amore' and the bass flute of up to eleven feet in length. Colorful programs of unusual orchestral arrangements for the flute contain commissioned works by contemporary composers and adaptations of classical scores. Founded in 1985 by Dominique Hunziker and Anne Utagwa, the group boasts a line-up of eight outstanding performers from Switzerland, Germany and Japan. As arranger/founder Hunziker explains, "There always has to be special occasion for me to arrange or compose a piece for the flute ensemble. Certain moments can be inspiring and determine the character of the work... it may be the bright timbre of the metal flutes, or texture (Debussy would call it 'le dessin'), in other words the way our articulation affects the music... When one thinks that the potential of the flute has been exhausted, one need only hear the sounds of an octet like 'Les Joueurs de flute.'"
