ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This recording, INFLORESCENCE II receives THE BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2006 for BEST CLASSICAL SOLO INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2006 from THE JUST PLAIN FOLKS AWARDS 2006!!!


Laurel Zucker, flute virtuoso surprises us again:
A fantastic 2CD set with the Complete Piazzolla Flute Tangos included , as well as the premier recording of music for flute by Philip Glass, Robert Baksa, Kuhlau, and many more greats!!

The Flute Network June 2003 recommends...
\"Oh! she\'s done it again- another brilliant two CD set of some of the best and most interesting works for solo flute. zucker brings to this collection of solos the kind of variety of intensity, high level musicality, and just plain perfect technique and intonation that makes it all a joy to listen to. These performances are so clear, open, direct and from the heart that it all seems so simple and easy, which belies the incredible work and accomplishment that goes into all of her many and diverse recordings. This collection of works for flute alone is a worthy successor to her earlier Inflorecence solo compilation. The 14 works presented have a varied style and pace, shaping the individual pieces into a very satifisfying whole that includes a dazzling array of brilliant compositions and extraordinary flute playing. Her rapturous tone, rhythmic drive, and creative musicianship will inspire you. Inflorescence, indeed, this recording is WHITE HOT AND INCANDESCENT!
THE FLUTE NETWORK 2003 [Read full review]

\"I can not resist the urge to write wonderful things about her CD and about her. Zucker\'s superior technique and tone are evident from start to finish....She and recording engineer, Don Ososke, did a masterful job of highlighting the textures of the individual pieces, while minimizing the pitfalls that typically befall solo recordings.
THE DAVIS ENTERPRISE - MAY 8, 2003


Gramophone issue December 2007 states \"Zucker shapes everything with lovely gradations of timbre and nuance, and her phrasing keeps the ear mesmerised.\" Laurel Zucker is described by Gramophone Magazine 2003 \"as polished and gratifying as Rampal and Galway. Zucker\'s interpretations are splendid all round. Her tone is airy and sweet, her virtuosity graceful.\"

In 2004 Gramophone \"strongly recommended\" The Complete Telemann Fantasies for Flute and The Complete J.S. Bach Flute Sonatas on Cantilena Records describing her performances as \"intelligent, naturally phrased

and highly musical with a rich sound beyond reproach.\" In the August 2003 book, Inspirational Stories from the World\'s Best Flute Players, Laurel Zucker is featured along with James Galway, Herbie Mann, Ian Andersen, and Julius Baker.

As a jazz flutist Jazz Now 2005 describes her performance as \"Laurel\'s flute cutting the still air with a deep-felt emotion to the very last note.\" Claude Bolling in March 2004 on Zucker\'s Bolling Jazz Suites CD writes \"Dear Laurel Zucker, Your recording is beautiful, musician partners are excellent and your flute playing superb!!!\" Of the Flute Music by French Composers CD, Sir James Galway recommends on his website \"This is a really good record and should be in the library of all serious students. The repertoire is very good and it is beautifully played by Miss Zucker. I have a copy and think it is outstanding...\"

As an active performer and supporter of the flute community, Ms. Zucker has been a guest performer/teacher at the New York Flute Club, The Portland Flute Society, The Houston Flute Society, LA Flute Club, Dallas Flute Festival, North Carolina School of the Arts and the National Flute Association Convention. In 2000 The Year of the Rome Aureole Jubilee (hosted by the City of Rome and the Pope) three of Ms. Zucker\'s Cantilena Records CDs (Serenades; Music of Guiliani for Flute and Guitar; Mozart Flute Quartets CDs) were played non-stop for six months throughout the largest Convention Center of Rome, Italy and were also featured in a documentary created at UCLA on the Santa Maria Maggiora Chapel of Rome.

Piazzolla Tangos
This is two CDs filled with the brilliant sounds of Laurel Zucker. My favorites are all six Piazzolla Tangos which flawlessly perfomed and as exciting as a roller coaster ride.

Martin George

Awesome flute playing
Awesome and never considered the flute a solo instrument but this recording has two hours of great stuff. At this point Laura Zucker and her flute are my favorite music listening in my car. Folks you have never heard anything like this. This flute player keeps my ears into her sound all the way home.

Reba H.

Piazzolla pizazz!
Jay, I agree with your review of the Piazzolla Tangos. Laurel Zucker has the sweet flute sound of an angel and the energy and passion of a flamenco dancer. The variation of music on both the CDs is quite remarkable. I did not think that a flute could sound so versatile and I am surprised that I enjoyed two hours of solo flute music. Laurel Zucker did it again and reinvented the wheel!
