DECLARATION OF LOVE TO THE CAPITAL OF THE FLUTE

Flautist Ana de la Vega’s fourth PENTATONE album My Paris is a declaration of love to the glorious French capital and its rich flute history, as well as a trip down memory lane, featuring some of the greatest gems of French music history, including works by Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, Massenet, Saint-Saëns, Satie, Poulenc, Mozart, Chaminade, Lili Boulanger, Von Paradis, as well as Bizet. De la Vega plays these pieces with verve and charm, full of reverence to centuries-old French flute-teaching traditions to which she still feels deeply connected and absorbed. She performs them together with the esteemed pianist Paul Rivinius.

Flautist Ana de la Vega’s presents her fourth PENTATONE album, after having released Bach Unbuttoned (2021), Haydn Stamitz (2020) and Mozart Mysliveček (2018). Paul Rivinius makes his PENTATONE debut.

Released physically on standard CD.

Paris and the flute
Reflections on a long-standing love affair
As Ana de la Vega puts it, “no other city has been so important to the development and history of a single instrument as Paris has been to the
flute.”

This recording is not only anthology of some of the greatest music inspired by this metropolis, but also a
trip down memory lane for de la Vega, who arrived in Paris straight from anAustralian farm, and eventually found
her way into centuries-old French flute-teaching traditions to which she still
feels deeply connected and absorbed. In that respect, My Paris is a very personal album, a declaration of love to a city that continues to draw and dazzle visitors from all over the world with its unparalleled beauty, mystery and charm.
