“Stunningly beautiful and impeccable were the first words that came to mind as I listened to Irish flutist Gary Arbuthnot playing on the CD Asturias. Arbuthnot’s tone is luscious, deep, rich, velvety, pure—every quality you could imagine in the ideal flute tone (or at least my ideal). His musicality is relaxing and moving and his technical precision is flawless. Titles include “For the Love of a Princess” (from the film Braveheart), “The Rose,” “He’s a Pirate” (from the film Pirates of the Caribbean), “Schindler’s List,” “November Rain” (by the rock group Guns and Roses), “Carmen,” “El Tango De Roxanne” (from the film Moulin Rouge), and Adagio (by Albinoni), to name a few. The arrangements are imaginative and distinct, and the order of the selections was thoughtfully considered; the CD takes you on a musical journey through a variety of moods, styles, and genres.”
