With her enchanting, radiant flute sound, Barbara Kortmann takes us on on a journey through truly exquisite Baroque music on her GENUIN debut release. Joining with spirited partners from the early music scene, the multiple award-winning musician (Aeolus International Competition for Wind Instruments, 2016 International Sir James Galway Flute Festival...) awakens works by Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Sebastian Bach, Marin Marais, and other composers to their full potential. Passionately, flawlessly, and with total commitment, the musicians perform concertos and chamber music, original works and arrangements.

The Flute View
"Ms. Kortman is an extraordinary player, whose fluid technique serves her musical mastery and unique, beautiful interpretations."
Review by Barbara Siesel, The Flute View, New York, March 2017

Fono Forum
"... a wonderful and highly sensitive musical interpretation."
Review by Holger Arnold in Fono Forum, May 2017

"... especially impressive was the liveliness she brought to the cantobile as well as the beautifully nurtured, if lively and vibrant, tones."
Review by Remy Franck, Pizzicato, March 12, 2017

Wiener Zeitung
"It is a sheer wonder what this Munich-born flutist extracts from the works of Vivaldi, Marais, Handel and Bach: virtuose, exciting; her trilling and runs slicing through the shimmering atmosphere like a silver arrow."
Review by Edwin Baumgartner, Wiener Zeitung, February 15, 2017

hr2 Kultur
“When the flute sings like a bird … Whether Barbara Kortmann with her flute enters a bird song contest together with a violin, or whether she really begins to let her flute sing in two George Friedrich Handel arias, the quality that entrances is the special beauty of her tones. ‘Sweet Silence, Soft Source of Calm Tranquility,’ is how one of Handel’s German arias begins. Tranquility is naturally all the more impressive if juxtaposed against an uproar … it was from this contrast that Marin Marais developed the variations to his renowned Folia theme—and gives Barbara Kortmann the opportunity to impress with her virtuosity.”
