Folias and Fantasias
The brilliant Cavatina Duo (Spanish flautist, Eugenia Moliner and Bosnian guitarist Denis Azabagic) offer a new disc of baroque masterpieces: Telemann's 12 Fantasies, and French virtuoso Marin Marais' spectacular variations on "Folies d'Espagne". Described by Gramophone as "relentlessly mellifluous" and by Grammy-winning producer and leading guitarist David Starobin as "simply the finest flute-guitar duo on the planet", the Cavatina Duo offer a recording for our times: music at once heartbreaking and uplifting.
“The 32 variations encompass a world of atmospheres, subtleties and acrobatics allowing the interpreters to convey many facets of their artistry. Recorded with intimate clarity, the disc finds the duo at the height of their musical powers.” - Gramophone
“The Cavatina Duo do it again! Flutist Eugenia Moliner and guitarist Denis Azabagic apply their distinctive artistry to music by two Baroque composers who left their mark on music as daring innovators. In these performances style and sensual beauty go hand in hand.” - Phil’s Classical Reviews
“This was one version I enjoyed from start to finish. Euginia Moliner plays with a full, round tone that adds to the beauty of the music. And Azabagic's playing is as impeccable as always.

And if you're not, well, go ahead and get this release and you might not have to bother with others.” - Charlottesville Classical
