Review: Nielsen, Ibert, Arnold – Flute Concertos – Clara Andrada
The Classic Review
Throughout this fascinating album, Andrada’s tone is strong and direct but also full and multi-layered. This is possible to appreciate due to the recording quality, which is spacious yet detailed, though I sometimes wished the mics to give a little more space to the timpani.
That lineup also featured Pierre Boulez’s "Mémoriale." Clara Andrada de la Calle played the sultry flute solos with a lovely tone and distinctive musicianship. And, of course, there was Bach. Ms. Andrada de la Calle shone in a spirited performance of the Fifth Brandenburg Concerto on Saturday evening.
