This recording presents a range of the finest new works for flute solo (and some with accompaniment) from some of Europe’s most dynamic and forward-thinking composers. Richard Craig is a specialist in new music whose technique and ability are well demonstrated in these virtuosic works. All of the pieces here, apart from those by Ferneyhough and Sciarrino, are given their world premiere recordings on this album.
"...Much of this program is clearly conceptual music, and much of the playing and sound effects occur at the softer end of the dynamic spectrum. Rarely does Craig even produce sound the traditional wa. Anyone who has aninterest in the avant-garde will find reward in the playing and selections here."
Gorman - American Record Guide - November/December 2011
"...There is no doubt that Richard Craig is a master of contemporary techniques for his instrument. He approaches the avant-garde with an obvious technical control and clear musical understanding, and the music is well communicated. This disc has much to offer in terms of both its repertoire and quality, and there is a pleasing consistency of standards throughout."
