Flute alumna Ginevra Petrucci releases CD on Brilliant Classics

petrucci_cd_kuhlauFlutist Ginevra Petrucci ’12MM, ’13AD has released a new recording on Brilliant Classics. Petrucci and the Kodály String Quartet recorded three quintets for flute and strings by Friedrich Kuhlau.

The CD was recorded December 27–29, 2012, at the Phoenix Studio in Budapest. The string players on the recording are Attila Falvay violin; János Fejérvári, viola; Mihály Várnagy, viola; and György Éder, cello.

Kuhlau, known to his contemporaries as the “Beethoven of the flute,” considered Beethoven a major influence. The two met in Vienna in 1825 and improvised musical canons. Kuhlau’s output for the flute comprises over 60 works — a large number for a composer who did not play the flute. He often turned to his colleague and friend Peter Bruun, a flutist and composer, for advice on his flute compositions. MORE
