Ewazen continues to add immensely to the repertoire with this stunningly performed recording of chamber music for flute.

The internationally acclaimed flutist Marya Martin, assisted by musicians from the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, offer a program of Eric Ewazen's music for flute. The Flute Sonata and the Bridgehampton Suite were both written specifically for Ms. Martin, a long-time friend of the composer's; the SeaSkye Songs were inspired by the poetry of Karen Wagner, written as a tribute to a friend who had committed suicide; and Mosaics was composed for another flutist friend. Composer Ewazen says that he was completely influenced by Martin's lovely golden tone and her spectacular technical agility. This compact disc of world premiere recordings offers beautiful performances of Eric Ewazen's music for flute, and adds immensely to the chamber music repertoire.

Review:
"[Eric Ewazen's] music...is tonal, mellifluous, well crafted for the instruments, generally easygoing. ...charming" (Fanfare)

"This is the kind of music that inspires people to become musicians. ...That Ewazen is so often effective in writing appealing sounds without descending into banality is testimony to his command of harmony, counterpoint, rhythm, texture, and pacing--and the fine judgement that shapes all." (American Record Guide)
