It seemed as if every flute player in the region was in the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater Friday night for the recital of flutist Emmanuel Pahud with pianist Alessio Bax, presented by Washington Performing Arts. Pahud, who is Franco-Swiss, has been the principal flute with the Berlin Philharmonic since 1992. In terms of both virtuosity and artistry, I haven’t heard another flutist who comes close to him.

He and Bax were always at the same place at the same time, in perfect unanimity of gesture and intent. Pahud’s rich, full sound, produced seemingly effortlessly, is a pleasure to listen to. But it is the variety he brings to that sound, vividly responsive to the expressive dictates of the music, that kindles the magic of his playing.
