Notes & Reviews:

"Robert Aitken has had a distinguished career as a flutist, composer, and conductor. He commissions and performs new music and is the artistic director of the Toronto New Music Concerts, which he helped found in 1971. This recital is a stunning demonstration of his talent as a performer, but it is also a beautiful homage to Toru Takemitsu." - Johnson, ARG
