“Anyone who has yet to encounter the playing of the astonishing young flautist Sharon Bezaly should do so without delay. She makes a sensational sound, can play anything from Bach to contemporary…” Classic FM Magazine
Sharon Bezaly has been recognized not only for her superb gifts as a musician, but also for her commitment to her instrument and its repertoire. She has inspired numerous composers to compose directly for her, and makes it a priority to perform these works all over the world, as well as recording them. To date no less than 15 flute concertos have been dedicated to her, and on Spellbound three of these are gathered.
On Spellbound, Sharon Bezaly interprets works by three female composers: Sofia Gubaidulina, Sally Beamish and Mari Takano. All three concertos were dedicated to Sharon Bezaly and the result is a triptych of three highly personal pieces joined together by the spellbinding artistry of the flautist.
Sofia Gubaidulina: The Deceitful Face of Hope and Despair
The Deceitful Face of Hope and Despair
Mari Takano: Flute Concerto
II. The Only Flower in the World
Sally Beamish: Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, "Enigma"
I. Callisto and Diana: Allegretto - Allegro
II. Callisto and Juno: Adagio
III. Callisto and Arcas: Andante - Allegro
“…Sharon Bezaly plays - stunningly well…”
“This disc is a powerful tribute to Sharon Bezaly's remarkable gifts (all three works are dedicated to her): and BIS shows commendable enterprise in issuing such a wide-ranging selection of contemporary works, in excellent recordings of persuasive performances. It deserves every success.”
