I have this thing about flute and flutists. Until Sharon Bezaly came into my life, Manuela Wiesler was my heroine. Rarely have I met anyone with her projection, her concentration, her total immersion in what she played, her charisma.This all is so evident from this record, as well as all her others. For anyone that has been involved in studio recordings, this should say it all: Take 1: Marais. Total concentration, total intensity, I could hardly breathe. After some 8 MINUTES a car came by and I had to break, but that first take stayed on the CD. 8 minutes in one take, and nothing to add or change - unheard of. Towards the end there is one variation, which she took in a tempo I have never heard anyone being able to play, with unbelievable triple tonguing. After she just stood there, and I sat, mouths agape, and waited for the reverb to die - then we burst out roaring with laughter - she had meant it as a joke, never having even attempted that speed, but it worked!!   Enjoy it, please, for your own sake.
