Album Notes
"Rita D'Arcangelo plays with a beautiful tone and remarkable technique. Added to this is a musical poise and sensitivity that touches the listener when she plays."

Sir James Galway

A new recording project is always a challenge and, at the same time, a unique and a nearly magical moment in a musician’s life.
Genuinely, this particular recording is very special and dear to me. Over the past ten years I have been very honoured to have many new flute solos written and dedicated to me by extraordinary contemporary composers. With time, they have become my dear friends, as well. I had for a long time the idea to collect these beautiful compositions on a single CD and it is with great joy and emotion that I present them to you here.

Joseph Russo - “Romanze”
Joseph Russo (born in 1953), a contrabassist and a composer, studied with Robert Starer and Vincent Persichetti (among others) at The Juilliard School and with Luther Noss at Yale University, attending composition/music theory classes at both schools. Joe has developed and continues to develop his own personal melodic and tonal compositional style.
He has composed numerous chamber and orchestra works.
“Romanze” for flute solo with its beautiful melodic line was written for me in October 2016 and I performed its world premiere at Yamano Music Hall in Tokyo, Japan in April 2017.

Daniel Olguin Reguera (born in1978) – “Cinco Improvisaciones sobre Buenos Aires”
Daniel Olguin Reguera, a guitarist and a composer based in Argentina and formed at the great school of Conservatorio de Música de Mercedes and Conservatorio de Música Alberto Ginastera. He is currently a music teacher in the province of Buenos Aires. The beautiful five movements of this composition resound and remind of the atmosphere and the flavours of the Argentina´s capital and bring the listener really there. The “Cinco Improvisaciones sobre Buenos Aires” were written for me in 2011 and revised in 2013. I performed their world premiere in August 2018 at Chieti Classica Festival in Italy.

Glinka/Balakirev – (Transcription Michael Brailovsky) “L´Alouette”
Michael Brailovsky, PhD (born in 1937), a musicologist, a pianist, and an arranger, graduated from The Leningrad State Conservatory of Music in 1966.

His Piano Quartet after Beethoven's Piano sonata A major, op.2, No. 2 was recently published in St. Petersburg.
Mily Balakirev composed his virtuoso piano Fantasy "L' Alouette" in the form of variations after M. Glinka's Romance for voice and piano of the same title. Michael Brailovsky arranged it for me in 2016 and I performed its world premiere at Dalet Concert Series in Princeton, New Jersey, in October of that year.

Vasco M.N. Pereira – “Atlantico”

Pereira (born in 1956) a pianist, a composer, a conductor, and an educator, studied in Portugal and Spain where he completed his studies in Gregorian Chant and Conducting at the prestigious Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid. In addition to his international activity as a composer, he has been very active as a music teacher as well.
“Atlantico” was written for me in August 2012 and it echoes the beauty and the mood of the Atlantic Ocean in summer.
I performed its world premiere in October 2013 at Yamano Music Hall in Tokyo-Japan
I also had the privilege to record it for “Diapason”, the classical music program of the Vatican Radio, in November 2015.

I performed the world premiere of “Cadenza for a Concert” at Shimogamo Jinja Temple in Kyoto, Japan in November 2010.
