ELF. Eales, Lee, Findon. Piano, Horn and... Flute?

An unusual trio of musical veterans play Phantom, jazz and Nyman

Three's phantasy: Dave Lee (horn), Geoff Eales (piano) and Andy Findon (flute)

Some things just don’t seem to belong in a pairing. The flute and the French horn both have their distinct sonic personality. It wouldn’t be going out on a limb to suggest that the average listener tends to lean towards one or the other. Even Mozart wrote for the horn out of love but trotted out his flute compositions for money. But opposites can and do attract and so it once more proves in a new recording featuring the horn and the flute and, discreetly chaperoning the pair of them, the piano.
