The English Flute

DDA 25061

A fine recital of 20th century music for flute and piano by English composers including some rare pieces, all melodic and memorable. A special recording as it features the traditional “English” wooden flute rather than the metal flute now more prevalent. Its warm tone embellishes these works even more.

American Review Review

The playing is first class. Michael Dussek… partners Celia Redgate beautifully. Recommended highly.

International Record Review Review

I can’t think of a single modern player who makes a sound to rival the amber-toned, oak-aged ravishing tone that radiates from Celia Redgate’s flute. Redgate and Dussek play with supreme naturalness; mellifluous tone and impeccable technique… effortless phrasing and enchanting musical presence. Glowingly recorded and played with exemplary taste and skill, this is one of the most distinguished flute discs to have come my way in a long time.

Pan Magazine Review

The high points of the CD are for me [the works by Bowen and Redgate]. Michael Dussek is a first-rate accompanist. The message of this CD is that simple is beautiful. Don’t just take my word for it, buy the disc

Gramophone Review

Redgate performs all this attractive material with conspicuous flair, grace and discrimination (vibrato is kept within tasteful bounds). I need merely add that Michael Dussek accompanies with the utmost sympathy, and the recorded sound is nicely intimate and beautifully balanced to boot.

Land Of Lost Content Review

Among a variety of good things there is German’s Suite for Flute & Piano. The Suite is an attractive piece of ‘quintessentially English music. In fact the middle movement, the Souvenir, is a perfect miniature that well balances sentimentality with retrospection.
