"Flautist Adam Walker is a stunning talent. It was not simply Walker's display of virtuosity - graceful and apparently effortless - that was astonishing, but his ability to characterise the music so vividly." The Sunday Times

Described by Classic FM as one of the world's top 5 flautists, at 16 Adam Walker was a finalist in the 2004 BBC Young Musician and in 2009 became principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra at the age of only 21. This programme explores the great French virtuoso flute tradition of the 20th Century, and in Walker's hands the brilliance and richness of this music is bound to be to the fore.
