ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This project is respectfully dedicated to the memory of Ms. Koregelos' teacher, Alain Marion. It features the world premiere recording of The Pegasus Suite, written for the artists by Nancy Bloomer Deussen in 1998 and premiered in Berkeley, CA, the same year. The Suite is based on the Greek myth of Pegasus, the flying horse. Born from the foam of the ocean, his adventures include journeying to Mt. Olympus and the stars where Zeus created a constellation in his honor.

After studies with Alain Marion in Paris and James Pappoutsakis at the New England Conservatory of Music, flutist Angela Koregelos made her professional solo debut in London's Wigmore Hall where the Times hailed "the freshness of her tone and the naturalness of her playing." She returned to the United States and became one of the youngest principal players of the Oakland Symphony where she was often featured as a soloist. She has performed and recorded with the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and the Skywalker Symphony where she has participated in numerous projects for film and television. She currently teaches flute and chamber music at Mills College, Oakland, and conducts masterclasses both in the U.S. and abroad. Ms. Koregelos performs on a flute made for her by her father.

Educated at Oxford University and the Royal Academy of Music, English pianist Zoe Smith is frequently in demand at home and abroad as a specialist in the flute repertoire. Through the auspices of the Stratford International Flute Festival and the UNAM Flute Festival in Mexico City, she has performed with a host of internationally acclaimed flutists, most notably with Alain Marion in the Sala Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico City. In addition, she plays harpsichord with the Mexican recorder virtuoso Horacio Franco. She enjoys working with singers, for which she has received both the Megan Foster Prize and the Ferdinand Rauter Award. Miss Smith currently serves as Assistant to the Head of Music at the Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Susan Winsberg

Reveling in French music.
Angela Koregelos’ CD Myths & Legends is a fantastic journey into a sensibility and sound that is uniquely French. Upon hearing Angela perform this repertoire, with her deep understanding of the music, one is not surprised to learn that she studied for years in France with one of the great masters of flute, Alain Marion. It is as if she has taken on the very spirit of the rich musical language of France.

In Debussy’s “Bilitis” there is a sense of refinement and delicacy which creates an almost shimmering beauty. The silvery voice of Leslie Loizelet as narrator matches the flute perfectly. The listener is simply transported by this luxurious Debussian feast of words and music.

Angela’s interpretation and performance of “Jouers de Flûte” by Roussel is flawless. The finesse, good taste and utter loveliness of her flute playing are matched perfectly by the splendid pianist Zoë Smith, who seems to share the same highly developed sensibility for this music.

Angela’s natural, free style of playing and her gorgeous flute tone, combined with such a deep understanding for French music, provide the listener with a superlative musical experience. It is such a treat to be able to hear this exquisite music coming through the speakers in one’s own living room.

The ensemble playing is exquisite. The players match each other very carefully, resulting in interchangeable musical ideas and tone color. I enjoyed the mixed medium of French narration in Bilitis (for me, it evoked works by Darius Milhaud). The Roussel is played with light spirit and effortless technique.

The tone poem, Syrinx, is interpreted with use of a Mezza di voce style. Ms Koregelos\' individual note-shaping and dynamic inflection is lovely and unique.

These recordings are a very personal statement of intimacy and gratefulness, and it shows in every detail.
