Flautist Susan Milan has garnered a fine reputation as one of Britain’s most accomplished instrumentalists with a fine career in recitals and recordings for many labels. Now signed to ‘Divine art’ for a series of CD’s, this lovely recital presents music for flute and piano by contemporary British composer’s, all of which is very approachable and most lyrical in style, with only Bennett’s ‘Winter Music’ and Brian Locke’s Sonata including some elements of serialism or modernist touches. As Peter Grahame Woolf of ‘Musical Pointers says in his review, ‘A useful compendium of little known flute music, despatched confidently by this established duo.”

“There’s a cool air to quite a few works here... Susan Milan proves a first class, characterful and unimpeachable guide. Andrew Ball offers staunch and imaginative support”

Jonathan Woolf

Music Web

“Susan Milan is an influential exponent of the modern flute. Her playing has a unique voice within the flute world... Milan’s playing is expertly accompanied by pianist Andrew Ball. This is an excellent collection of new British repertoire, which gives the works well-deserved exposure. Milan plays with a strong tone and a sense of conviction as well as impressive technical control. Andrew Ball’s piano playing is excellent throughout.”

Carla Rees
 

Music Web

“A useful collection of music that flutists should consider for their recitals... despatched confidently by this established duo.”

Peter Grahame Woolf

Musical Pointers

“This recital could hardly be bettered... one can hardly imagine any [of the pieces] being better performed. Sparkling performances... excellent recorded sound.”

Martin Anderson

International Record Review

“Milan’s flute playing is a joy, her musicianship scintillating, matched by Ball’s sensitivity, and the sequence is engaging”
