Discography

FLUTE VOYAGE

Birgit Ramsl, flute

Vito Lattarulo, piano

Works by C. Ph. E. Bach, C. Reinecke, J. Francaix, T. Takemitsu, O. Messiaen, S. Prokofiev

“Flute virtuoso Birgit Ramsl undertakes an exciting musical journey from Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s well-ordered late baroque to Toru Takemitsu’s expansive Air. Further stations: Schumann romanticism by Carl Reinecke, agile neo-classicism of French influence by Jean Francaix and Russian form by Sergei Prokofiev. Olivier Messiaen’s enraptured “Merle noir” hardly ever sounded more intense and colourful than with this brilliant soloist!

(Edwin Baumgartner, Wiener Zeitung, November 10, 2015)

“Congratulations. It’s a pleasure to listen to her. She never plays the flute ostentatiously, but lets the music be the main thing. Yet her interpretation is very personal and compelling.”

(András Adorján, November 5, 2016)

PLAY OF COLORS - TRIO PARTOUT (NEW EDITION 2019)

Birgit Ramsl-Gaal, flute
Johannes Flieder, viola
Gabriela Mossyrsch, harp

Works by C. Debussy, J.M. Staud, A. Bax, H. Genzmer

“This wonderful programme has everything to inspire the listener. With varied moods between elegant, lively and playful, melancholic and reflective, the compositions of Debussy, Staud, Bax and Genzmer are performed in a highly inspired way. Everything sounds natural on this CD, and that’s what is making it extremely pleasant. No theatricality, no demonstrative virtuosity, no excessive ornamentation disturb the rich and varied music.”

(Remy Franck, Pizzicato Magazine, November 13, 2019)

“Birgit Ramsl (flute), Johannes Flieder (viola) and Gabriela Mossyrsch (harp) with works by Debussy, Staud, Bax, Genzmer. Fascinating instrumentation, great sound pictures, fine interpretation.”

(Gert Korentschnig, Kurier, February 28, 2010)
