WHAT KATIE DID
“What Katie Did” first appeared in 1992. It includes a wide selection of classics and lesser-known repertoire for solo flute and with piano. The highlights are a moving performance of the great Sonata in A by Franck and the Partita in A Minor by J.S.Bach. Other lesser-known gems include the whole of La flûte de Pan by Jules Mouquet and the Saint-Saens Romance.
Available directly from 80 Long Lane and specialist music shops, £10.95.
Released in 1998, it contains an exceptionally wide range of music, mainly from the unaccompanied repertoire. There are also tracks with mezzo-soprano(Jane Money) and one with viola (Alicia Chislett). You can hear the full spectrum from traditional folk tunes to settings of Japanese haiku (with voice) in a haunting contemporary idiom. Japan is also represented with two, intense, highly spiritual pieces Requiem and Mei by Fukushima. Kokopeli by K Hoover evokes the desolate plains of the American West before the coming of the white man. The classic repertoire in this disc includes “A Minor Sonata” from C.P.E. Bach, and unaccompanied version of the C Major sonata by J.S. Bach and one of the twelve “Fantasias” by Telemann. Particularly worthy of note is an original setting of one of Kate’s poems from Epithalamium for flute and voice by Richard Peirson, her former accompanist
All this for £10.95 from Long Lane or specialist flute and record shops.
