Flutist Robert Stallman
Jill's guest this week is virtuoso flutist Robert Stallman. His CD New Schubert Works for Flute & Strings, sonatas in transcription, was recently released on the Bogner's Cafe label.
Mr. Stallman's unique sound has repeatedly captured the attention of music lovers ever since his mentor, Jean-Pierre Rampal, judged him early on to be "one of the most gifted musicians I have ever encountered." The London Times sums it up: "Stallman is no ordinary virtuoso of the flute, though virtuoso he emphatically is. He dazzles because of his penetrating artistry." This artistry has distinguished all facets of Stallman's career as solo flutist, chamber musician, recording artist, master teacher and editor/arranger.
