Acclaimed Catalan flautist Claudi Arimany is a musician of international fame. Earlier in his career, he enjoyed a close rapport with the great French flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal, with whom he performed in many countries around the world. The two also made several recordings together. The late French flute legend considered Arimany to be a remarkable musician and once wrote of him that he was among the finest flautists of his generation. He admired his musicality, his remarkable artistic sensitivity and his refined sense of beauty. As a soloist, Arimany has performed with many of the most important European and American orchestras, including the English Chamber Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia Virtuosi of New York, and with notable musicians such as cellist Mischa Maisky, among many others. His extensive discography consists of around 40 albums recorded for various labels, including Sony Classical. Together with Pedro José Rodríguez, one of the most prominent pianists of the Basque Country and a leading figure in the musical life of the city of Pamplona, he will perform a programme of rarely heard compositions for flute from the Romantic era, some of them requiring virtuosic ability and demanding all the authenticity, passion and bravura that the two musicians undoubtedly possess.
