The National Flute Association‘s Summer 2013 edition of The Flutist Quarterly has a wonderful feature on RR release Traveling Sonata featuring flutist Viviana Guzmán and guitarist Jerémy Jouve. While critic Tess Miller was impressed throughout the recording, particularly with the diverse stylings of Viviana Guzman, it was the adventurousness of the repertoire that stood out:
“While the well-known tracks are very pleasing, I found the newer works for flute and guitar especially exciting. Perhaps today’s composers will be inspired to continue finding fresh ideas on how to write for this beloved pairing.” — Tess Miller, The Flutist Quarterly
Traveling Sonata: European Music For Flute & Guitar
Viviana Guzmán, flute
Jérémy Jouve, guitar
An adventurous program of European masterworks for flute and guitar, from scintillating young artists VIVIANA GUZMÁN and JÉRÉMY JOUVE.
Their outstanding performances have been captured brilliantly by Grammy®-winning recording engineer Keith O. Johnson. A winner for all audiophiles and music lovers! This album is a musical journey full of emotion, from the soothing and mellow music of Faure and Satie to the driving excitement of “Bolero” and “Carmen,” to the thrilling modern music of Dyens, Duplessy and Ourkouzounov.
