In a recent appearance on radio's "Saint Paul Sunday Morning" Emmanuel Pahud spoke of musicians--like Mstislav Rostropovich, Yo-Yo Ma, and Isaac Stern--who, just by stepping on stage, let you know something wonderful is in store. Pahud himself is an artist of this caliber. Swiss-born, French-trained, and holder of the literal center seat--the principal flutist's chair--of the great Berlin Philharmonic, this dashing young musician has awed critics with his virtuosity and panache. Hailed as the natural heir to James Galway and Jean-Pierre Rampal, Pahud is "the new flute sensation-dynamic, telegenic, with a bit of an impish Matthew Broderick quality about him. But as this recital made clear, Mr. Pahud deserves his acclaim. he has extraordinary technique, flawless intonations and uncanny breath control...effortless energy and scintillating sound" (The New York Times). In his Fortas Chamber Music Concerts debut, Emmanuel Pahud performs with Ensemble Haydn Berlin, whose 15 members include some of Mr. Pahud's colleagues from the Berlin Phillharmonic.
Part of the Kennedy Center's Millennium Celebration of the Legacy and Promise of the Performing Arts.
