"It is always a great pleasure to listen to Laurel Ann Maurer. Her sound has an eloquent purity and loveliness that is beautifully suited to this collection of lyrical pieces that she performs with grace and touching musicality."
Former Principal Flutist, New York Philharmonic
Beautiful classical and romantic music for flute and piano performed by award-winning flutist Laurel Ann Maurer and pianist John Jensen. These are the favorite pieces that audiences love to hear and flutists love to play. Included are the Benjamin Godard "Allegretto" op. 116, "On Wings of Song" by Felix Mendelssohn, the beautifully haunting "Vocalise" by Rachmaninoff (op. 34), the perennial favorite "The Swan" by Camille Saint-Saens, the lively and bouncy "Tambourin" by Gossec and the following lovely pieces by Gabriel Faure: "Sicilienne" from Pelleas et Melisande, "Berceuse", "Andantino" from his "Fantasie" op. 79 and "After a Dream". This album also includes such flute favorites as the JS Bach "Siciliano" from his second Sonata, "Pan" by Donjon, "Nightengale Serenade" by Wilhelm Popp, "Minuet and Dance of the Blessed Spirits" by Gluck and "Bergamask" by Paul Koepke. Listeners will also enjoy such timeless favorites as "Meditation" from Thais by Massenet and "Reverie" and C"laire de Lune" by Debussy. Performed here with grace and beauty.
