Notes & Reviews:

In addition to being the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra's principal flutist, Iceland native Stefán Ragnar Höskuldsson has forged a distinguished simultaneous career as a soloist and chamber musician. On this, his debut solo CD he offers an impressive and varied program of classic works for flute and piano by mainstream composers, plus a haunting unaccompanied flute novelty composed by a fellow Icelander. Michael McHale, with whom Mr. Höskuldsson collaborates, is one of Ireland's leading all-around pianists. "Stefán Ragnar Höskuldsson played with agility and warmth" - New York Times
