“In the early 1960s a lucky band of American flute players gathered in Brattleboro, Vermont to study with Marcel Moyse. We were all changed forever. I can only describe the experience as a kind of alchemy: when we walked into Mr. Moyse’s studio we were one kind of player, and when we left we were another. We were richter, deeper. We were shaken, exhilarated, and illuminated.” – Paula Robison
Marcel Moyse was one of the twentieth century’s giants of instrumental music – a virtuoso flutist and teacher whose influence continues to shape classical music today.
Parnassus Records is pleased to offer the world-premiere release of a live Moyse recital with his brother Louis and Blanche Honegger-Moyse along with new transfers of rare 78s featuring Moyse in concerto and solo repertoire, including the world premiere recording of Jacques Ibert’s Flute Concerto.
