Usually despatched in 4 - 5 working days.
A beautiful collection of haunting pieces for flute, played by master flautist Pierre Hamon.
Pierre Hamon has chosen from a wide range and time span - medieval repertoire, a sefarad song, an armenian melody, traditionnal colombian themes and contemporary pieces of Philippe Schoeller and Mario Lavista.
Pierre Hamon offers ‘A poetic, exhilarating journey on the wings of time, an investigation into the primitive magic power of music, combining festive medieval modes, traditional trance musics, and dreamlike contemporary escapades.
“Hamon's elaborations have a distinct flavour of "East meets West", and are dance-like and lively in spirit. …the contemporary pieces… show off these instruments to good effect. Philippe Schoeller's cycle Hypnos… is particularly effective… in the latter stages of Hypnos linea II, the overdubbing and computer enhancement of flute sounds is very nicely managed.”
