The selection of works on this recording is intended to provide no more than a brief introduction to and not a comprehensive overview of this period. The repertoire is too broad and too multi-faceted to be presented here in all its diversity, so the selection was limited to works for ‘normal’ flute, which are all played by Mirjam Nastasi. She has already recorded the preceding four volumes. They all offer, like vol. 5, a broad spectrum of both well-known and rarely-heard, as well as entertaining and demanding pieces.
