Other participants: Emmanuel Pahud, Juliette Hurel, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

Following recorded forays into the modern, with newly composed concertos by Dalbavie and Pintscher, and into the Baroque, with Bach’s complete flute sonatas, Emmanuel Pahud performs a programme of virtuoso operatic fantasies with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and its exciting young Canadian music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Emmanuel Pahud’s Night at the Opera features fantasies on Rigoletto by Franz and Karl Doppler, Der Freischütz by Claude-Paul Taffanel, Die Zauberflöte by Robert Fobbes, La traviata (for two flutes) by Emanuele Krakamp and Carmen by François Borne in an orchestral arrangement by Raymond Meylan. We are also treated to Lensky’s Aria from Eugene Onegin, arranged by Guy Braunstein, and familiar flute solos from opera, including the entr'acte from Bizet’s Carmen and Gluck’s Dance of the Blessed Spirits from Orfeo ed Euridice.

Juliette Hurel, solo flute of the Rotterdam Philharmonic, joins Pahud in the works for two flutes. The digital bonus track is the Menuet from Bizet’s L’Arlésienne.
