The third concert of four!
I have to admit to some reservations with this one.....
It was primarily booked as it was a flute concert and a desire to hear something different. It was a YCAT concert (Young Classical Artists Trust) with Adam Walker flute and James Baillieu piano.
My reservations were the programme since I'm not a Bartok fan and know little of Messiaen and Poulenc.
Schubert - Introduction and Variations on ‘Trock’ne Blumen' from Die schöne Müllerin D802
Bartók - Suite Paysanne Hongroise
Messiaen - 5 Leçons de Solfège à chanter
Poulenc - Sonata for flute and piano
So what did I think? Firstly Walker and Baillieu were very good but I didn't really think any of the pieces would make my "I want to listen to that again". I think that is one of the problem for a flautist, repertoire ! Still a nice hour spent !
