Andrew Stanley –
I have listened to this CD many times over the last two weeks and find it absolutely captivating. The album is full of some of my favourite pieces of music and is performed by two stunning musicians who bring out the quality of their instruments and the music to the full. The flute and piano compliment each other perfectly and the tone of the flute brings out a mystic and romantic feel in this beautiful selection of pieces.
Treat yourself or your friends to this wonderful CD for Christmas!

I bought this CD initially to inspire and encourage my daughter who has just started learning the flute but I have been listening to it regularly as a way of unwinding. It is incredibly relaxing!
