"In a flute concert of soaring lyricism and artistic panache that recalled the great playing of Marcel Moyse and Jean-Pierre Rampal, Daboncourt's marvelously fluid playing and soaring sound were stunningly presented, with impeccable style, elegance and passion."
"Alain Daboncourt is a truly remarkable French flutist.”
