Notes & Reviews:

Nina Stern has carved a unique and diverse career for herself as a recorder player and classical clarinetist. This disc represents a musical landscape - a personal collection of some of her favorite pieces of music.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Nina Stern is an excellent performer on the recorder, and this is a collection of solo works for the instrument with improvised drum patterns by Glen Velez. The selections include her own arrangements of traditional Armenian songs, medieval monophonic dances ('Lamento di Tristano' and 'Chominciamento di Gioia'), four selections from Jacob van Eyck's solo recorder collection of 1644, a Telemann solo "flute" fantasia, and a 17th Century arrangement of 'Greensleeves'.

Over the course of whole recording variety is created through Stern's use of seven different instruments (two pieces are played on the alto chalumeau, an early type of clarinet) and Velez's use of seven different drums and a "Sruti Box" to supply an occasional drone on two tracks. One of the most effective interpretations is of Giulio Caccini's 'Amarilli mia bella' as arranged by Van Eyck (without percussion). Overall, an interesting introduction to recorder playing.
