Classy ( and classic ) flute playing!
04/03/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Solo flutist Martha Aarons has a winner with this cd, played with vitality, virtuosic technique and lovely sound throughout the works by Hummel, F.X.Mozart, Paul Schoenfield and Piazzola. All the tracks are great, best of all is Piazzola's Histoire du Tango, performed with rhythmic pizzazz and sensuality. This is great playing! ( Jean Pierre R., eat your heart out!) Excellent contributions by her colleagues pianist Francis Renzi and guitarist Jason Vieaux."
Fabulous, Exciting Flute Playing

"What seperates Ms. Aaron's playing on this CD from the tens of thousands of 'good' flute players is her all-too-rare sense of sound production, phrasing and enthusiasm. Professional flute players, especially in France and Switzerland where they think they own the flute world, should view this as a must buy."
A perfect flute performance

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have often thought that the flute has gotten a bad rap because so many of the orchestra instruments are capable of drowning out even the best flute playing. On this CD Ms. Aarons has shown that the flute can be the most important voice with her amazing musical talent. I was delighted to listen to her beautiful, pure tones. I can't imagine coaxing a better sound out of this instrument. And the tango...what a tantalizing subject. The two musicians who played along, Frances Renzi and Jason Vieaux, blended beautifully with Ms. Aarons. This is the most amazing music, performed by an incredible artist. I am going to follow up to see if I can spot her future work. Meanwhile all of my other CD's are being neglected...I don't want to listen to anything else!"
