Notes & Reviews:

Jennifer Stinton, one of Britain's most acclaimed flautists, is accompanied by pianist Malcolm Martineau on this highly pleasurable album of contemporary American works for the flute. This disc balances rare repertoire with beloved compositions, and is delightful throughout. Stinton's recordings are highly desirable, and this album is sure to be a favorite. Composers on this disc: Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland, Howard Hanson, Robert Muczynski, Kent Kennan, Richard Lane, and Charles T. Griffes.

Classic CD
Jennifer Stinton is fortunately well known as one of Britain's foremost flautists. These works are rarely heard (here), and she demonstrates great depth in contemporary American compositions.

Cork Examiner
If you have the taste for the contemporary, as distinct from 'modern' Americans, this is the definitive selection.
