Johann Stamitz - Flute Concertos
A pioneer in the development of the symphony, Johann Stamitz also composed several concertos, including fourteen for flute.
The four flute concertos presented here show what delightful results came from the combination of Stamitz’s lively musical imagination with the talents of the highly admired Mannheim orchestra’s players for whom they were written.
Virtuosity, lyricism and a dash of Bohemian spirit characterise these charming works, in which the emergence of the Classical style from its Baroque antecedents can be heard.
“Canadian Musician Extraordinaire… one of Canada’s leading flutists, one with impeccable taste and extraordinary abilities to define and mould musical concepts.” Classical Music Magazine on Robert Aitken

Charles Wuorinen Series: Duos
William Anderson (guitar), Joan Forsyth (piano), Wilbur Pauley (bass), Christopher Hall (tuba), Erik Carlson (violin), Michael Caterisano (vibraphone), Eliot Gattegno (alto saxophone), Eric Wubbels (piano), John Ferrari (marimba), Margaret Kampmeier (piano), Thomas Meglioranza (baritone), Robert Aitken (flute), James Avery (piano)
Like all of Wuorinen’s music from the past three decades, the duos on this recording take the long view of musical history and align themselves not only with its expressive traditions, but much more importantly, with its secure and sustained future. The spare utterance of those works of the great European tradition that are composed for only two musicians, leave no margin for error: all is exposed when writing for two contrasting instruments. These duos, spanning slightly more than a quarter century of Wuorinen’s oeuvre, never lapse in their intensity and invention. They display an impressive fecundity of sources and outward forms.
“I have always found his music highly rewarding, even if it is demanding. If you are not familiar with it, this is a good introduction. ...an introduction to one of our finest contemporary composers” American Record Guide
“Performances are uniformly excellent. ...Another addition to the Wuorinen discography. Don't hesitate.” Fanfare
