Marlene Verwey Releases Debut Solo Album 'A Flute Affair'
Born and raised on a farm in the rugged North West province of South Africa, Marlene Verwey is no ordinary flutist. Her recent winning of the highly prestigious Sir James Galway Rising Star of 2012 highlights Verwey’s remarkable rise to success.
A Flute Affair is the debut album from this supremely talented flutist. The album, which combines music ranging from classical masters such as Handel and Mozart, to contemporary compositions from Sigmund Romberg and Coenie de Villiers, truly offers something for all listeners. Beginning with the beautiful and dreamy ‘Karoonag’
The album also features a number of original arrangements containing combinations of flute and backing instruments never before heard. Verwey is accompanied by many brilliant musicians in these pieces, including Charl du Plessis, guest pianist on ‘Karoonag’
A Flute Affair is the perfect homage from Verwey, combining her dedicated tuition, many musical experiences and varied influences in this dazzling work.
"This is a beautiful recording and a pleasure to listen to" - Sir James Galway, Meggen, Switzerland (April 2012).
