Alain DABONCOURT reviews
"... soaring lyricism and artistic panache that recalled the great playing of the flutits Moyse and Rampal... elegance and passion... Daboncourt's marvelously fluid playing... the flutist's soaring sound was stunning."
John Paul Keeler
Hudson Valley Newspapers, March 2006
"This french music program for flute and harp, with the hungarian violist Zoltan Toth for the Debussy sonata for flute, viola and harp, is a delight...performers, in particular the flutist Alain Daboncourt, are showing sensitivity."
