Members of the Brodsky Quartet meet the internationally famous flautist Lisa Friend in an album of key works of the flute repertoire: Mozart’s flute quartets.
Highly praised for previous recordings, her own compositions, solo recitals in Europe, the US, and Asia, as well as appearances with prestigious orchestras (the Philharmonia, City of Prague Philharmonic, Virtuosi Pragenses, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic), Lisa Friend devotes her very first recording on Chandos to witty, colourful interpretations or Mozart.
The flute quartets of Mozart are central to the classical flute repertoire – and deservedly so: the composer’s characteristic charm, wit, beauty, and elegance are in evidence throughout. These works convincingly embody Mozart’s desire to compose music that engages trained musicians, while also entrancing lay listeners without their necessarily knowing precisely why.
