Adam Walker on French music for flute


This week’s podcast sees acclaimed flautist Adam Walker joining Gramophone Publisher Martin Cullingford to talk about his two new French music albums, 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 – this last work also featuring violist Timothy Ridout. The second album, ‘Belle Époque’, features Walker’s Ensemble Orsino joined by pianist Pavel Kolesnikov in an eclectic program of French music for wind ensemble.

Gramophone The podcasts are presented in association with Wigmore Hall, where the music continues despite the lockdown with two concerts streaming during the week (find all the details of the concerts for the week at the bottom of this page). To view or donate, please visit Wigmore Hall website.
