This is one of the finest discs of musicfor flute and piano I have heard in years. The programme, mainly French, suits these gifted musicians very well - particularly the Widor, a genuine masterwork in this repetoire. The Taktakishvili Sonata is also well-known, as is Chaminade's lovely Concertino, but this version of Piazzolla's Histoire du Tango is new to me. The performances are immaculate: suffused with notable musicianship throughout, they are very well recorded. An excellent disc.

Odin Baldvinsson and Patricia Romero have developed a sensitive rapport as joint performers with controlled virtuosity and musicianship evident in their performances. An impressive and enjoyable CD.
- John France
This is a fascinating CD. The playing by Odin Baldvinsson, flute and Patricia Romero, piano is superb in every way. All of these works are technically demanding. The recording is excellent. The notes are clear, easy to read and immediately helpful.
For all enthusiasts of flute music this disc is a must. My favorite work was the Widor, but all the other pieces are of huge interest and musical value.
-David R. Dunsmore
Througout the CD one is impressed by the artist's technical prowess but also there appears to be a real insight and empathy between them. All in all, this recital surprised me by its quality of composition and diversity. I look forward to more from this duo.
