"BenoÎt FROMANGER is not only a marvelous flutist but also an accomplished  musician  who nobly  honours  the école Française de Flûte."

"Talented Musician, inspired and hypersensitive, Fromanger remains inscribed as the deserving representative of the French Tradition set up by Jean-Pierre Rampal and Roger Bourdin, his teachers and expresses himself like one of the greatest flautist in the world...

His beautiful vibrancy is wide and generous; but the most noticeable in BenoÎt Fromanger, it is this ability to adapt his phrasing and modify his tone so as to carry out at best his music and all of them."
