Second World War masterpieces for flute and piano

Featuring works by Leo Smit, Dick Kattenburg and Marius Flothuis

The darkness of the Second World War affected composers in different ways; this collection of works from the Netherlands shows some confronting it head-on, and others choosing musical forms that appear to look aslant at its horror - though none remained untouched by it. Smit and Kattenburg both died in the camps, just two of the 102,000 Jewish, Sinti and Roma victims from the Netherlands who are known to have been killed.
