Eighteenth Century Flute Duets
Julius Baker and Jean-Pierre Rampal

Titanic Records, in conjunction with Oxford Records, is proud to announce the release of "18th Century Flute Duets: Julius Baker and Jean-Pierre Rampal" It is likely that you already own a recording of a performance by Julius Baker and Jean Pierre Rampal, the material on this vintage recording is commercially re-released for the first time. In addition to his many solo LPs, Baker played principal flute on the famed Columbia Broadcasting Symphony (CBS) Orchestra recordings conducted by Bruno Walter and on the New York Philharmonic discs of 1965-83, under the baton of Leonard Bernstein. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest flutists of the last century and is responsible for bringing a new level of excellence and artistry to the role of an orchestral flutist. Rampal had a legendary career and is considered by many as one of the greatest musicians we have ever heard perform. The disk consists of some of the favorites of the 18th century flute repertoire. Mr. Baker's unique sound and flawless technique combined with the effortless and insightful playing of Jean-Pierre Rampal make this recording a fine addition to any classical music lovers collection. When released years ago it received highest praises and recognition.

"Hurry, hurry hurry! This is a recording that to this hardened pair of ears, is the hit of the year! The sound bathes in a magnificent resonance; the playing reminds one of a duet performed by one player, recording each part himself. Baker and Rampal are the Heifitz-Oistrach of the flute world."
