Regarded by critics as "the whole package" with a "clear sparkling sound [and] a vibrancy in all registers," Tampa-based flutist Taylor Irelan is an exciting emerging artist. He’s collaborated with award winning composers to commission, premiere, and record new works for the flute, as well as write his own works and transcriptions for flute and various ensembles.
Before settling in Largo, Florida in 2010, Croatian pianist Andrea Feitl enjoyed an international career as a soloist, chamber musician and especially as an accompanist to such prominent artists as flutist Gaspar Hoyos, trumpeter Stanko Arnold, violinist Leonid Sorokov and many others.
Frequent collaborators, this stellar duo celebrates the lyrical melodies and emotive expression of four powerhouses of the romantic repertoire, including the U.S. premiere of a work by acclaimed flutist and composer Daniel Kessner.
