1001Leben show by Juliette Rahon
In London with the United Strings of Europe
The Swiss flutist Sébastian Jacot explains Brian Ferneyhough's unplayable solo piece "Cassandra's dream song".
He leads us through a rugged mountain range and offers breathtaking views.
It’s a beautiful CD – Jacot is that rare combination flutist who plays with copious virtuosity and with a tender, natural musicality that can make you cry.
"He has all the qualities we were looking for.
He has charisma, musicality, and technical prowess. I am so pleased that we have discovered this new talent".
