Notes & Reviews:

This recording of multi-cultural flute solos from the 21st century performed by Nina Assimakopoulos is distinguished by the geographical diversity of the composers, the multi-cultural elements employed in their works, and the array of performance practices.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Most of these pieces were written in or after 1990. Nearly all of them employ extended techniques, and she uses them with as much authority as Claire Chase and Leonard Garrison in other recordings I've recently praised. Half the composers are American and half come from other countries, so these selections represent several cultures, as is described well in the booklet. Attention flute world: here is Nina Assimakopoulos, an artistic force to be reckoned with! Not only is she in total command of the flute, but she also plays bass flute admirably.
