One Sheet: 

Prepare yourself for a redefinition of the flute, for you are about to experience a range of expression and color hitherto unexplored through this revered instrument. Flutist Linda Wetherill has been exploring for decades, and she has returned from her journeys with immeasurable riches, a mere fraction of which are encapsulated in this recording. 

Born in Milwaukee, Linda Wetherill graduated from the Eastman School of Music. Before long she became solo flutist of the Ensemble Intercontemporai at IRCAM in Paris. This move from essentially mainstream chamber and orchestral playing to intensive interaction with many of the greatest contemporary composers of the world was a major turning point for her. Working directly with composers Boulez, Stockhausen, Halffter, Messiaen, Berio, Holliger and Kagel, she developed a prestigious and authoritative solo repertoire which carried her to European festivals and to NY’s Carnegie Hall to premiere Stockhausen’s Im Freundschaft as winner of East & West Artists International Competition.

FANFARE

She has chosen pieces by contemporary composers that combine elements of folk music from various regions with modern European procedures, giving them a special flavor...Flutist Wetherill impresses as much by her musicianship-specifically a resistance to overemphasizing the exotic elements of these pieces- as by her technique and tonal resources. Well done. - Art Lange
