The flute is one of the instruments closest to the audible human breath and is caught in the process of continually becoming something other than a metal cylinder. Listening to Richard Craig's playing, one becomes aware not of the limitations of the flute but of its expansion into a vibrant sonic biosphere. We listen, not just to the flute, but to teh flausti; singing, whistling, humming are added to his palette and become integrated with the sound of the instrument.'' - John Hails. Richard Craig has established a leading position in the new music world for his virtuosity and skill in traditional and newer techniques on all members of the flute family. Here he presents a challenging and fascinating divers group of contemporary works by British, American, French and Swedish composers - some are solos, which present even more challenges to the player - other swith voice or chamber ensemble. Distractfold Ensemble is a British group of high stature, having been ensemble in residence at Harvard University in 2016 - this year they are back in America but at Stanford. The ensemble cna vary its personnel and here is a string trio: Linda Jankowska, Emma Richards, and Alice Purton.
