ABOUT THIS CD

In “French Flute Favourites” given pride of place to works by lesser-known composers, ranging from Widor’s late romantic style to Sancan’s more modern and extrovert compositions, from Gaubert’s impressionist reminiscences to Bozza’s lyrical sensitivity, and have included a tribute to a great female composer, Cécile Chaminade.

Roberto Olzer pianoforte
Deobrat Mishra sitar

Release date: March 28th, 2018

Recording Information:

Recorded, mixed and mastered in May 2017 at Digitube Studio, Mantova, by Carlo Cantini

ABOUT THIS CD

A piano, sitar and tabla trio is rarely heard, notwithstanding the vast range of World Music.

The receptivity of the pianist Roberto Olzer for Indian music, together with Deobrat Mishra (sitar), his nephew Prashant Mishra (tabla) and their openness for experimentation and musical dialogue have created this unique recording of great seductive resonance. When Indian classical music rooted in the spiritual guru-shishya parampara (teacher-student tradition) meets and mingles with the rich harmonic heritage of the West the result is pure, musical alchemy.  Melodies of Indian, Irish and Spanish origin provide ample space for improvisation, as do inspired original themes, all emerging from the infinite source of a world soul  – Anima Mundi.
