Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

The flute takes center stage on this CD of orchestral works by five American composers of the twentieth century, including the world-premiere recording of a 1996 piece by Chicago's Lita Grier, an award-winning composer who recently began writing music again after a long absence.

Currently, Ms. Stolper is Principal Flute of the Grant Park Symphony, Chicago Opera Theater, Music of the Baroque and the new music ensemble Fulcrum Point. As an active studio musician she has also played for hundreds of TV and radio commercials. She traveled with the Chicago Symphony for the world-renowned tour of Russia with Maestro Solti (90) and over 15 European/Asian tours with Maestro Barenboim and Boulez. She acted as the principal substitute for the orchestra for over a decade.
