Flying Solo: 21st Century Music for Unaccompanied Flute
Flying Solo explores unaccompanied flute music written in or after 2001 by composers who were born in the United States. This album results from my passion for working with composers, performing new music, and exploring new sounds for my instrument. The seven pieces I selected for this recording represent a variety of styles, compositional techniques, and overall musical structure. Some of them incorporate a wealth of challenging extended techniques, while others draw on more traditional elements of flute playing. This album is also the culmination of my Doctoral research.
