A Salon Opera
Flauguissimo Duo - Yu-Wei Hu (fute) & Johan Löfving (guitar)
Period flute and guitar ensemble Flauguissimo Duo make their Resonus debut with this unique programme of works for flute and guitar, A Salon Opera.
Taking its inspiration from the Viennese salon music from the first half of the nineteenth century, when the music of the concert hall and opera was routinely brought into a more domestic setting, the Duo takes us on a journey through the rich repertoire both composed and arranged for the flute and guitar.
Have a taste and listen here!
“With magical playing from (Johan) Löfving, the salon atmosphere created could be coming from the pages of Thackeray’s Vanity Fair itself....This album is a joy to listen to from start to finish.”
- TP, Classical Guitar Magazine, 2019
“...a sublime musical experience .... excellent arrangements and virtuosic period guitar solos....”
- Bradford Werner, This is Classical Guitar, 2019
“An engagingly intimate programme for the salon, combining lyricism, melody and virtuosity in a way designed for more personal listening.”
- Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill, 2019
"...a fine sensitivity to the style of the period with its subtle use of flexible tempos and rhetorical gestures."
- Andrew Benson-Wilson, Early Music Reviews, 2019
