Notes & Reviews:

"Wow. This is truly an "all-star" lineup of musicians. Jeanne Baxtresser has some remarkable friends and chamber music partners, all from her time in the New York Philharmonic, and the playing on this recording defies description. You simply must hear it for yourself. I am a bit puzzled by the recording dates, 1994-96, and how this might have taken ten years to hit the market. I am glad someone persevered and gave us a chance to hear this extraordinary recital. The repertoire is all worth exploring. Some of the works are quite familiar to flutists, including the Copland Duo and the fiendishly difficult Barber Summer Music. The rest deserves equal attention, especially the Gaubert. I did not know this extraordinary, impressionist work for flute, cello, and piano; and this performance sent me right to the library and music store to get a copy. The Dring trio is pleasantly tonal, perhaps a bit vacuous sometimes, but still a suitable addition to this program. Anyone who enjoys great chamber music should find this and listen repeatedly. You will have a truly rewarding experience." -ARG
