Sami Junnonen (flute)
Helsinki Chamber Orchestra
James S. Kahane (conductor)

The flute concertos by Jacques Ibert, André Jolivet and Joaquín Rodrigo together embody a distinctive musical heritage written for the flute in the twentieth century, exploring the instrument’s limits. These works are now heard together for the first time on one album. Flautist Sami Junnonen is joined by the Helsinki Chamber Orchestra under the direction of conductor James S. Kahane. 

The album features Ibert’s ‘Concerto for flute and orchestra’, which is now considered to be one of the most esteemed concertos in the flute repertoire; Jolivet’s virtuosic and rarely-recorded ‘Concerto for flute and string orchestra’; and Rodrigo’s ‘Concierto pastoral for flute and orchestra’, which has gained a formidable reputation among flautists for its exceptional technical requirements.
