Franz Schubert FINCHCOCKS SCHUBERTIADE

£11.00

“one of the most enjoyable performances of [Trockne Blumen] that I have heard” British Flute Society

This beautiful CD was a labour of love for flautist Elizabeth Walker.  Showcasing her magnificent Louis Lot flute (no. 435 from 1859), Liz plays works by Schubert and a work by Theobald Böhm inspired by Schubert.  She is partnered superbly by Richard Shaw playing a Pleyel Grand piano from 1842.  The recording venue was the piano's former – the magnificent keyboard museum at Finchcocks in Goudhurst.

A recording that captures the unique sounds of these instruments and the wonderful atmosphere that Finchcocks possessed.

“a warm, rich indulgent sound that has a sufficient ‘edge’ in the tone of the flute and a dash of brilliance in the piano timbre to make most pleasurable listening” British Flute Society

“A sensitive performance of Trockne Blumen elicits fine playing from both performers…one of the most enjoyable performances of the work that I have heard” British Flute Society

“Walker’s performance is outstanding. The colors and phrasing that she coaxes out of the Louis Lot flute are sensitively chosen and always interesting. This is an album you will return to again and again.” The Flute View, Jul 2015

“it does showcase [the] fine technique of Walker and Shaw in some beautiful fluid performances, and the beauties of the instruments, and their remarkable tone qualities. Planet Hugill

“As well as demonstrating the two instruments representing a particular musical period, Elizabeth Walker & Richard Shaw also very effectively demonstrate the musical thinking and techniques of the Schubert period in their playing, with sensitive touch from Shaw and delicate articulation, phrasing and subtle vibrato from Walker.” Andrew Benson-Wilson
