EMI Clas­sics 501 2262 Th­ese three sin­gle-move­ment flute con­cer­tos were all com­mis­sioned for and pre­miered by Emmanuel Pahud, prin­ci­pal flautist of the Ber­lin Phil­har­monic. Marc-An­dré Dal­bavie’s 2006 Flute Con­certo is very much what you would call a blended work; soloist and orches­tra work hand in glove in spec­trally flavoured im­pres­sion­is­tic mode. Michael Jar­rell’s 2007 . . . un temps de si­lence . . . starts with a greater fo­cus on stand-out vir­tu­os­ity be­fore re­treat­ing into melod­i­cally stretched in­tro­ver­sion. Matthias Pintscher’s ghostly, flut­tery, echoey Tran­sir (2005-6), not a mil­lion miles re­moved from some of the flute ex­plo­rations of Sal­va­tore Scia­r­rino, car­ries a stronger grip than the other works. Pahud’s per­for­mances sound im­pec­ca­ble. www.emi­clas­sics.com
