Felicia van den End is a remarkable and diverse flute player. She distinguishes herself by her sound and timbre in combination with her choice of repertoire varying from classical till jazz and Latin-American music.
Her love for the latter originates from her many travels about Latin America. Especially the main role of the flute in this music inspired her to make this CD.
On her debutalbum Sonoro she plays with her quartet compositions by Mike Mower amongst others Sonata Latino and Opus di Jazz, with elements of Piazzolla, Brazilian choro and traditionals from Mexico.
Line up: Felicia van den End, flute- Marc Bischoff, piano-Mark de Jong, percussion-Marko Bonarius, double bass
