Renowned for its luminosity and searing expressiveness, the music of Latvian composer Peteris Vasks frequently explores the relationship between nature and humanity, not least in the Flute Concerto (written for Michael Faust), which is among the most expansive of Vasks’ orchestral works. Abstract qualities in the Sonata contrast with the deftly defined lyrical and rhythmic elements of Aria e danza, while Landscape with Birds exploits the entirety of the flute’s timbral range.
“Vasks deserves to be better known. His colourful, dramatic music is well-served here by powerful orchestral work and sensitive playing by the soloists.” BBC Music Magazine
