Historic Recording Series, Volume 4
Historic Recordings of Maurice Sharp

For 50 years, Maurice Sharp (1908–1986) was both principal flute of the Cleveland Orchestra and head of the flute department at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The collected works heard on Historic Recordings of Maurice Sharp demonstrate his vast contribution to the American flute community and beyond. This new CD contains the reissue of Sharp’s one solo LP, Music for a Golden Flute, which was recorded by the Cleveland Sinfonietta in 1960, with Louis Lane conducting. It features works for solo flute and orchestra: Griffes’s “Poem,” Foote’s “A Night Piece,” Honegger’s Concerto da Camera (with Harvey McGuire, English horn), and Hanson’s Serenade. The orchestral excerpts from works by Beethoven (Leonore Overture No. 3, Symphony No. 3), Brahms (Symphony No. 4), Mendelssohn (Midsummer Night’s Dream, Scherzo), Rossini (Il viaggio a Reims), Hindemith (Symphonic Metamorphosis), Dvorák (Symphony No. 8), and Ravel (Daphnis and Chloe) are from Cleveland Orchestra recordings conducted by George Szell and Pierre Boulez. The chamber music performances from the archives of the Cleveland Institute of Music include Sonata for Flute and Piano by Beryl Rubinstein, Caprice on Danish and Russian Airs, Op. 79, by Camille Saint-Saëns, and Sonatina for Flute and Accordion by Waldemar Bloch. Assisting artists in these performances are Marianne Matousek Mastics, piano; John Mack, oboe; Franklin Cohen, clarinet; Donald Payne, piano; and Jacqueline Hofto, accordion.
