A Splendid Flute Recording

Legendary flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal made a splendid flute recording, La Flute D’or de Jean-Pierre Rampal on Philips Tresors Classiques.  This flute recital includes a superb rendition of Tommaso Albinoni’s  Le Celebre Adagio in which the cellos sing with clear tones while the flute soars with passion.  Other selections include Gretry’s Concerto en Ut Majeur,  Suite de danses.  All are played with intense feeling by Rampal.  This recording is a must purchase for flute connoisseurs.
