Notes & Reviews:

"At the radiantly lovely opening of the Prokofiev Sonata one realises that Marina Piccinini's flute-playing is very special, her lyrical phrasing cool, exquisitely shaped and with an underlying delicate sensuality. She is equally captivating in the will-o'-the-wisp Scherzo, even with a touch of whimsy, and the Andante has a subtle, beguiling, romantic feeling to contrast with the gambolling finale, spiritedly infectious. In short, with Andreas Haefliger a highly sympathetic partner, this outstanding performance establishes the writing as perfect for the flute, even with one's memories of the Second Violin Sonata, which the work subsequently became at the behest of David Oistrakh. Similarly, the opening of the Franck Sonata is instantly beguiling, with flute and piano echoing each other engagingly at the opening and in the dreamy Andante." -Gramophone
