. . earthy . . . exotic . . . ethereal . .
A musicale drawn from French, Latin and South American origins, this music will transport your ear with the silvery tones of flute coupled with the infinite variety of colors and musical richness offered by classical guitar and piano. Their supple sounds blend perfectly with the stand-out nature of the flute’s melody and flowing virtuosity.
