Description: Only a couple of the usual suspects are here in this unhackneyed collection of music for flute and harp and the composers born in the 20th century are all quite approchable: the Greek fountain-nymphs known as Naiads are sensuously portrayed by Alwyn in a substantial tone-painting, and the tale of Apollo and the satyr Marsyas is told in haunting fashion by the contemporary Italian composer Tiziano Bedetti. A more fleeting evocation of fauns is brought to life by his elder colleague Salvatore Sciarrino, and between them comes the Third Capriccio by Nino Mazzoni: a piece of two contrasting movements which begins with a delicate and elegant dance for naiads and closes with a sharply drawn sketch of Pan himself, laughing and carousing. Claudio Ortensi (flute), Anna Pasetti (harp).
