Parallel Lives features Flutist Szabolcs Szilágyi and Pianist László Borbély. This is Laszlo Borbely’s 12th DSD album at Native DSD Music on the Hunnia label.
Listening to Parallel Lives is a unique experience because the recording offers a selection of flute and piano pieces of two world-renowned Hungarian composers: Béla Bartók and Ernst von Dohnányi.
The names of Bartók and Dohnányi may seem unusual in a flute and piano program. Although the latter did have some interest in the instrument in the last years of his life, Bartók did not compose pieces for solo flute or any significant chamber music where the flute was originally included. There might be several explanations for this.
Famed flutist Sir James Gallway says “Mr. Szilágyi’s playing of Ernst von Dohnányi : Passacaglia for flute solo OP. 48. No. 2, was an amazing display of complete mastery of the flute. He played this most difficult piece with a perfect technique and a deep understanding of the music. His stage presence charmed the audience who gave him a well deserved standing ovation.”
