Notes & Reviews:

"Though he may well disapprove of the designation, in... explosante-fixe... Pierre Boulez has written one of the great flute concertos of this or any other century... This is music of prodigious melodic inventiveness... This is a superb disc. The energy and sensitivity of the works it contains puts a great deal of other contemporary music deeply into the shade, and performances and recording are equal to the music's stature." - Gramophone
