Just as a textilist weaves threads into a tapestry, a composer crafts a collage of timbres, rhythms and silence into a soundscape. Owning a fascination with creators and their art, I have dedicated much of my career to commissioning composers and documenting their new works in performance and recordings. And, to give listeners a perspective, I often present these works alongside classic flute literature. This particular cd highlights new and old works by some composers who are dear to my heart. They are all Americans, including Hindemith, who came to America as a German immigrant and in January 1946 became a U.S. citizen.
