Notes & Reviews:

As the title implies, this is virtuoso operatic music for flute and piano paraphrased by composers who were inspired by popular operatic arias.

"Apart from Raff, the names of the composers here are unlikely to be known other than to flautists. Most were indeed not only flautists themselves but wrote large quantities of studies and concert works for the instrument...This may not be music of great depth or range - mention of the achievements of Liszt is out of place in this context, but it is extremely effective. It is not hard to imagine how well it would be received in a salon or in a small concert hall at the time that it was written...Fortunately the two players on this disc understand both its qualities and its limitations very well. Both are Swiss, and they have been playing together since 2001...both players do full justice the music and present it to its best advantage...As a whole, this is an extremely entertaining disc likely to have appeal for many more than merely flautists and opera lovers." -MusicWeb International
