Prudence Davis, Jeffrey Crellin and Peter Lynch. Beautiful French trios, duets, and solo works for oboe, flute and guitar including Fauré's Pavane, Ravel's Pavane, Debussy's Reverie and Syrinx and traditional folk song arrangements.
"... Prudence Davis' pure, singing tone teams perfectly with Jeffrey Crellin's rich, warm oboe playing, and are securely and sensitively accompanied by Peter Lynch on guitar. The ensemble playing is immaculate, with impeccable intonation and beautiful phrasing, and superb breath control by the two wind players. Peter Lynch is also featured as a soloist in the Sonata III by Mexican composer Manuel Maria Ponce (1882-1948).
Two important compositions from the standard flute repertoire, 'Syrinx' by Debussy and Giuliani's 'Serenade in G major' Op. 127, for flute and guitar, are performed elegantly by Prudence Davis. Jeffrey Crellin and Peter Lynch play three melodious short pieces by the French Romantic guitarist, Napoleon Coste and some lovely settings of eight English folk songs (collected by Vaughan Williams and Cecil Sharp) by the renowned composer of guitar works, John Duarte.
The CD is recommended for those looking for calm, soothing music, full of flowing melodies and pleasing harmonies by musicians who play with warmth and sincerity. The Lynch arrangements are definitely worth a listen."

Gabriel Urbain Fauré was a French composer, pianist, organist and teacher. He was one of the foremost French composers of his era, and his musical style influenced many 20th century composers.
Claude-Achille Debussy was a French composer. Along with Maurice Ravel, he was one of the most prominent figures working within the field of impressionist music, though he himself intensely disliked the term when applied to his compositions.
Many consider Ravel as a major composer for the piano as well as a genius of orchestration. But it is always a surprise to discover how few works make up his total output for the instrument. All his compositions for piano can be performed in under two and one half hours.
