Adam Walker on French music for flute
This week's podcast sees acclaimed flautist Adam Walker join Gramophone Editor Martin Cullingford to talk about his two new albums of French music, both released on Chandos Records. The first, ‘French Works for Flute’, sees him joined by pianist James Baillieu in music by Franck, Widor, Saint‑Saëns and Duruflé - that last work also featuring viola player Timothy Ridout. The second album, ‘Belle Époque’, features Walker's Orsino Ensemble joined by pianist Pavel Kolesnikov in an eclectic programme of French music for wind ensemble.
