The German-born composer Friedrich Kuhlau settled in Copenhagen, where he made a name for himself in spite of continuing financial problems. Although not a flautist himself, he is known in particular for his considerable contribution to flute repertoire, of which the present trios for three flutes are an example. A close contemporary of Weber, Kuhlau enjoyed a reputation as a pianist and composer, writing music that is characteristic of its time, with a fine grasp of flute idiom.
"..."Frankly, I was rather surprised at how much I enjoyed this disc. A whole CD of music for three unaccompanied flutes could be a little daunting. But Kuhlau’s music has charm, lightness and strength of construction and this is brought out in these performances. Do try the disc, you will hear some charming music and some superb flute playing."
