Christos Hatzis is recognised as ‘one of the most important composers writing today’. His music bears a number of influences—Christian spirituality, Byzantine music, as well as more popular idioms—and is marked by a strong identification with his source material. Two of his most prominent interpreters join forces on this recording to present two Flute Concertos. Departures is a memorial piece written at a time of personal loss and the 2011 tsunami at Fukushima, Japan and its aftermath. Its appeal is driven by the composer’s unique and eclectic style, which brings in elements of traditional Japanese folk music, blues and burlesque music. Overscript is a commentary on Bach’s Concerto in G minor for Flute, which is ingeniously quoted in full, but in fragmented form, within Hatzis’s own composition.

                                     *****      (Exceptional Album)

Luca Rossetto Casel - Musica magazine (Italy) - June 2015


 "...Gallois plays brilliantly and…sympathetically partnered by the Thessaloniki orchestra with its silky strings and poetic woodwinds (particularly bassoonist Georgios Politis), conducted by Alexandre Myrat, its Music Director since 2011" 

 
Laurence Vittes - Gramophone magazine - September 2014

"Gallois is a masterful flutist and he does everything he can, and more…The Greek orchestra…[responds] to the music’s theatricality, and that counts for a lot. Conductor Myrat is a longstanding advocate for Hatzis’ music, and his contributions to this release are sensitive and understanding." 

Raymond Tuttle - Fanfare - September 2014


 "...The performances here seem to be exemplary. Flutist Patrick Gallois makes a lovely sound and has no trouble at all with the technical challenges." 

 
Paul E Robinson - La Scena Musicale - June 2014
