This CD features classical and ethnic music for flute with piano or harp. These pieces reflect many moods; from the dreaminess of Barber’s famous Canzone to the excitement of the Latin American El Quintapesares. These songs are some of my favorites, small gems I never get tired of playing. The feelings they evoke have caused me to reflect about my life. So… Reflections.
