The turn of the century in 1900 was once called the golden age of the flute. And here, Hans-Udo Heinzmann introduces three works from this period together with his piano partner Elisaveta Blumina on his fourth GENUIN CD. Debussy's "Afternoon of a Fawn", perhaps the best-known flute work of all time, is supplemented by César Franck's brilliant Sonata in A major and the weighty, passionate and unjustly neglected Sonata by Joseph Jongens. These three pieces portray a universe in miniature, and Heinzmann allows his instrument to shine, cajole and shimmer in the French style, with all the clarity of the Mediterranean world!
