Poulenc Sonata for Flute and Piano, FP 164
Claude Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano
Prokofiev Sonata for Flute and Piano in D major, Op. 94

Sirius and Chi-Hoi showed in their December audition the strength, brilliance, softness and lyricism that can be brought to the flute and piano repertoire in the hands of fine musicians.

The Poulenc and the Prokofiev Sonatas (we heard the latter in a violin recital last season, and it will be interesting to compare this with Prokofiev’s original configuration) are two of the finest pieces in the repertoire, combining sparkling virtuosity with gorgeous, well-shaped melodies. The Bolling Suite is fluffy and jazz-influenced, and completes a vibrant recital programme
