Works for solo flute by some of the most respected British composers of the present day – performed with consummate skill on a variety of instruments by the virtuoso flautist Nancy Ruffer, who has been at the forefront of contemporary flute interpretation, giving numerous first performances – including the UK premiere of Ferneyhough’s Superscriptio at the QEH – and commissioning new works from composers such as Chris Dench, Michael Finnissy and others.

Reviews

The Sunday Times

Ruffer’s playing is fastidious, impassioned and silver-tongued throughout.

An ambitious survey of late twentieth century pieces for solo flute. This disc will no doubt be essential listening for flautists engaged with the contemporary music scene. The performances are as authoritative as it gets!
