sees flautist Katherine Bryan present a fresh view on some much-loved works, together with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by Jac van Steen. All the works, originally written for violin, feature captivating melodies that Katherine believes were crying out to be explored from the perspective of a different instrument.
The recording opens with Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending; this favourite from the classical repertoire is a perfect fit for flute, an instrument often used to depict birdsong. There are dazzling showpieces from Saint-Saëns and Sarasate plus Paganini's 24th Caprice which features flutter tongueing (Variation 5) and pop tongueing (Variation 7). Bryan's beautiful tone is showcased on works such as Kreisler's Liebesleid and Massenet's Meditation from Thaïs.
All the solo violin parts have been transcribed and adapted for flute by Bryan herself.
