Description: After the violence and destruction of the First World War, a new musical aesthetic developed in Paris. Following the publication of Jean Cocteau’s famous pamphlet “Le Coq et l’Arlequin”, Impressionist influences were denigrated and instead simplicity in expression was promoted. This album of flute music charts this new ‘Harlequin’ direction. Thies Roorda (flute, piccolo), Alessandro Soccorsi (piano).
