    I think you’d probably be happy with either of them, since they were both good.  I liked the second one better, because I thought the strings and flutes balanced better.  The first one seemed more “flute heavy” to me.  I still think either would be beautiful.

    Bleh, I hit post once and closed the window.  They need to fix all these forum bugs.

    I wouldn’t say to discount the first because the flute overbalances the strings – that’s just the piece – the flute is playing a big solo while the strings are pizzacato, which is always going to be much softer.  That said, it’s hard to really judge the string players in the first recording because all they’re doing is pizz.  Did they not provide any other samples?

    I like the second one better…the fist one is just a little too choppy for my taste.  

    But as a former flutist of 6+ years, your pieces made me very nostalgic! I’d love to hear more!

    I prefer the playing of the second flautist.  In the first one, it almost sounds like he/she is blowing too hard at the beginning of each note compared to the end.  Maybe that’s the notation in the music, but it isn’t to my taste.

    I lean towards the second group.  The flautist in the first seems to have a couple of rhythmic hiccups – they’re subtle, though.  I think you’d do ok with either group, but yeah Allestri would be my first choice.
