GOD GIVEN TALENT”, A TRULY “PRIMA DONNA ROSE AMONG THE THORNS

It was my pleasure to laud her CD so fervently, because it was indeed some of the most compelling flute playing I have heard in a while, her playing stands out like a rose among the thorns.

The Mozart album is wonderful. And how wonderful to play the “alla turca” from the A-major sonata! How “unauthentic” ! I loved it. This is a terrific record.

“Romantic Flute” CD is also very enjoyable I loved her interpretation of both, I have promised myself to listen to her beautiful tone on this recording. This is simply gorgeous playing on an exalted level. She is truly a “prima donna assoluta” on the flute! I love this album, Bravo!

A WONDERFUL TONE, ONE OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD!

Her music has given me much pleasure, and I am continually amazed at the richness of her technique and tone. She should guard her gift carefully, for it is given to very few. I wish I knew what it felt like to be so talented”

FLUTE SINGING OF LOVE

The outstanding flutist Şefika singing like the “fairy bird” (with what else can the beautiful and fresh voice of her flute be compared) sounded with an inspiration, fascinating the audience and the musicians. Such light breathing seems to be just God’s gift.

S.Beresten – Literature and Art

A MAGNIFICENT FLUTE PLAYER

Şefika Kutluer is a magnificent flute player, a house artist of the recording company from Vaud “sensitive, emotional, moving and heartbreaking”

Revue Musicale De Suisse Romande

ATTRACTION IN PURENESS… ANGEL-LIKE PURENESS AND A DEVIL-LIKE SKILL

“This Turkish artist creates fascinating music with her instrument. Attraction in pureness… In the full meaning of the word, there is an ideal pureness in Kutluer’s performance, which transports the audience into the realm of fascination and attraction… Furthermore, we can say that she displays an angel-like pureness and a devil-like skill… One hears from time to time the nostalgic sound of dervishes’ particular reed flutes.”

Revue Musicale De Suisse Romande

I WOULD PUT MONEY ON HER IN JUST ABOUT ANYTHING

Turkish flutist Sefika Kutluer has one of the most alluring sounds I have ever heard, matched with a formidable technique, She takes her place as one of the most dazzling flute soloists on the world scene. Notice I said soloists, for she has such a rich and provocative tone as to place her out of the orchestral category altogether. I am completely stunned by this woman’s playing – such true mastery of all facets of an instrument’s varied challenges is rare in our days of “technique is everything” Kutluer shows what a soulful sense of melody and line she has. The sound is thick and rich, lofty and lilting.

The Carnival of Venice re-treatment by Pierre Agricola Genin works very well here and so adroit is Kutluer at navigating the difficulties that you are hard-pressed to see how a trumpeter could ever match it. All played with such security and wisdom that I can hardly imagine them done better on any instrument. So, in a nutshell, this is phenomenal playing by an artist who revels in this sort of work. I would put money on her in just about anything. This disc is most pleasing in all respects.
