It is no everyday occurrence when a cello and a flute join to form a duo. But when one hears the cello singing and the flute floating above it, one wonders why more musicians have not had this idea. Atsuko Koga (flute) and Ithay Khen (cello) are "in dialogue" on their GENUIN debut CD – and there are few conversations to which one would rather listen. There is well-known music in a new guise, such as Mozart's Duo, K. 423, the adaptation of which already appears completely familiar to us – the breath of the two musicians flows so naturally, the music is so completely at the centre of focus. But above all, there are new things to discover, such as Villa-Lobos's wonderful Duos, Gaspar Cassadó's and Pierre Ferroud's pieces for cello or flute – who's singing? Who's floating?
