The Winds of Christmastide

Winds of Christmastide CD

Beautiful arrangements of beloved Christmas carols for acoustic orchestral instruments.

“Charming… one of the sweetest treats of this season.”

—The New Releases, Michael Barone,
Minnesota Public Radio Network

“Clean, Crisp ’n bright! Nine members of the Minneapolis Philharmonic Orchestra combine to provide beautiful classical treatment of well-known holiday standards. In essence, this is an intimate chamber ensemble, and the music is a treasure unfolding in your living room. The Winds of Christmastide is an instrumental delight that will please a broad audience of holiday music lovers.”

—Carol Swanson, Christmasreviews.com

“These traditional carols [have a] dancing-around-the-maypole feeling that happily runs counter to the overstuffed arrangements of over familiar tunes we hear too much at this time of year.”

—Michael Anthony, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Full Harmonic Media Group is proud to present two very different but equally spectacular CDs by internationally-renowned virtuoso flutist Julia Bogorad-Kogan, Principal Flutist of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.

“Were you to have only one Baroque CD in your collection, it should be this one.”

—Flute World July/August, 2006

“Julia Bogorad-Kogan has released two magnificent CDs that I am sure every flute student and teacher will want to have in their recorded collection. Her artistry and that of her colleagues is exemplary and there is much to be gained from listening to these outstanding performances of repertoire that is played by us all!”

—Jeanne Baxtresser,
Former Principal Flute, New York Philarmonic

Flute Music of the Paris Conservatory

Flute Music of Paris CD

Julia Bogorad-Kogan, flute
Margo Garrett, piano

Some of the most worthwhile pieces of the “Paris Conservatory School” of composers are presented on this CD, which features flautist Julia Bogorad. She and her worthy collaborator, renowned pianist Margo Garrett, present these works with not only virtuosity, but verve, heart, and soul, in a true audiophile recording.

“Listening to your CD, I realize that these [Handel] works are among the most important of the repertoire, standing on their own next to Bach. Your realization enhances and makes obvious a text that many do not understand at first. Your ornamentation is never obtrusive, but clear and sober…a sheer delight. [The French CD shows] sonority and colors, facility and articulation, rigor and imagination, and most importantly, musicality…These qualities are demonstrated by ample measure in the CD. Bravo!”

—Michel Debost

“LOVELY—These are classic performances of the well-known flute repertoire. They are beautifully modelled. Anyone wishing to learn them for the first time couldn’t do better than to listen to this CD…very imaginative and interesting.”

—Trevor Wye
