Between Flute and Guitar

The Noteworthy Duo perform music of Latin American on "Between Flute and Guitar."

Music for the flute and guitar is almost a staple for compositions from Latin American composers. That’s what flutist Lisa Schroeder and guitarist Michael Anthony Nigro (together known as the Noteworthy Duo) have put forward on their CD, “Between Flute and Guitar.”  The duo performs selections from Brazil to Argentina, and nearly everything in between.

The music of Astor Piazzolla has been cropping up in recordings a lot lately. The quintessential Argentine composer’s mix of the music from his homeland with twentieth century western art music set the stage for many of the Latin American composers to follow. Here the Noteworthy Duo presents his “Story of the Tango” (Histoire du Tango) in a delightful performance.

Our quick pick this week is another reach back into the classic recordings. This one comes from one of the premiere Renaissance vocal ensembles, The Tallis Scholars. In 1998 they released a 25th anniversary CD that will almost definitely get you hooked on this group’s wonderful musicianship and excellent taste in repertoire.

    The Tallis Scholars ‘Silver’ album has been replaced by ‘The Essential Tallis Scholars’ – the recordings are identical, it is just the cover and title that has changed.
