Reviews

'Emily Beynon plays quite beautifully throughout. This is a welcome recording' (Gramophone)

'An ingenious piece of programming by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's (Welsh) principal flautist and the pianist Andrew West: they have gathered together the complete works for flute and piano by the group of French composers known as Les Six and titled the record after the only work—a set of solo piano pieces—on which all six collaborated. Although the 'collectivisation' of these six musical personalities was the brainwave of a music critic in 1920, the flute and piano pieces recorded here date from the early 1920s to the 1970s. Poulenc's dazzling Sonata (1957), brilliantly played by Beynon and West, is the highlight of an absorbing and hugely entertaining disc' (The Sunday Times)

'Hyperion has enriched the catalogs with far more than its fair share of superb releases, and this is yet another one … urgently recommended to everyone who has even a passing interest in fine flute-playing or works of this period' (Fanfare, USA)

'Highly recommended' (Sun Journal, USA)
