Flautist Alexis Kossenko’s latest offering is evocative, impressionistic: a programme in which flute, piano and voice together have pride of place.

In the company of Anna Reinhold, Sabine Devieilhe, Magali Mosnier and Emmanuel Olivier, Alexis Kossenko blends melodie and chamber music through a fascinating programme that explores the various influences of French music in the early Twentieth Century.

From Ancient Greece (with Maurice Emmanuel’s Odelettes anacréontiques or Debussy’s very famous Syrinx) to the Orient, with Jacques Ibert and Maurice Ravel (Asie), the musicians deploy a great colour palette, to the image of Monet or Renoir’s vivid paintings. The result is a fine picture of French music at the time of Debussy.

Music in all its clarity, refinement and transparency.
