Emmanuel Pahud, flute
Alession Bax, piano
“One doesn’t know what to admire most in this flautist: the musical intelligence, the finesse, the sumptuous sound or the multitude of colors. Not to mention his superior technique and the fullness of sound in every range” (The Diapason). Principal flute of the Berlin Philharmonic, Emmanuel Pahud enthralls “with an astonishing array of subtly molded sounds, superb breath control, flawless articulation and, above all, consistently eloquent phrasing” (The Baltimore Sun).
“Alessio Bax is clearly among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public,” proclaims Gramophone. “His playing quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity,” creating “a ravishing listening experience.”
“Pahud always charms the ear” (Classic FM Magazine)
