Notes & Reviews:

Odyssey: 11 American Premieres for Flute and Piano is the latest release from flute superstar Mimi Stillman. This 2-CD collection, with pianist Charles Abramovic, is a breathtaking tour de force that brings together nearly a dozen works - mostly written for Ms. Stillman - highlighting the richness and diversity of the American contemporary music scene. Odyssey takes its title from the work by Gerald Levinson, and more broadly, it is the adventurous journey representing the recording as a whole. There is stunning breadth and variety of musical styles from eleven composers of different compositional languages and approaches. "A magically gifted flutist, a breath of fresh air" - The Washington Post "Technically agile and imaginative in her use of color" - The New York Times
