Synopsis

Album Description
This is the first commercial recording of three major works for flute and piano by the 90-year-old composer Louis Moyse. I believe that these works are ?major? not only among Moyse?s output of 100 or so compositions, most of which involve the flute, but also that they can hold their own among the best works for flute and piano written in the 20th century. It has been a labor of love to record this music, but Karen Kevra and I have also been driven by a sense of urgency. Our hope is for Louis Moyse to gain some overdue recognition as a composer. We are also confident that listeners will enjoy these pieces and that musicians will want to play them.

"Karen Kevra and Paul Orgel are extraordinary musicians, who play with depth and maturity. The music has remarkable range, from quirky rhythms to atonal movements to lovely melodies."
