"The strings of ensemble LUX accompany [the Johnny Breitwieser performance in the Schauspielhaus Wien] with clockwork precision." Wiener Zeitung

"The musical part of this almost three-hour long evening is outstanding.

[Especially] the splendid ensemble LUX." Viennat.at

"[ensemble LUX played with] extraordinary virtuosity" Bregenzer Festspiele

"One was struck by the dynamic range the quartet had been able to deploy in ACFNY’s small performance space, from thunderous outbursts in settori to the extreme pianissimos of Wally’s work. ensemble LUX's precision and control mark them as a group with a promising future." Christian B. Carey

New Flute Quartets: ensemble LUX with Maria Fedotova

Label: SPEKTRAL

Released: November 2013

Price: € 14,90 (Order at the bottom of the page)

With the exception of Roland Freisitzer’s Flute Quartet, all of the works on

this recording were composed specially for Maria Fedotova. Each of the new works is nonetheless inspired by her entrancing and magical flute playing. Her extraordinarily varied tone, which seems to change and adapt itself uncannily to the sound of each new work, is extended still further through the use of different instruments, including a wood flute that is used in the works by Purgina and Freisitzer.
