"This album is about taking you on a journey via three decades of flute concertos surrounding the events of the famous storming of the Bastille in 1789, in what was a rapid transition from Gluck’s musical idiom, shaped by opera and the Baroque – his concerto here embodies Paris before the revolution – to the Romantic and revolutionary ideal that we hear in the music that follows. I had the great fortune of having Giovanni Antonini and the Kammerorchester Basel as partners. They defend this music with fighting spirit and a truly revolutionary fervour!” -Emmanuel Pahud
