Jeanne Baxtresser - Principal Flute New York Phil. (music for flute, piano, harp, cello)

Disc on Cala Records, part of their "New York Legends" series. Interesting program with music of
Taktakishvili, Martin, Gieseking, Gaubert, Amirov, and Debussy. Enjoy.

“True to the title of this CD, Jeanne Baxtressser is becoming a legend in the orchestral world. Ms. Baxtresser’s consistency, confidence, tone and technique are abundantly evident in this collection. Debussy’s Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune is ravishing in a lovely arrangement for flute and harp…wonderously lush.”—Pan Magazine

My (lazy) track listing:

1-3) Otar Taktakishvili - Sonata in C for Flute & Piano

4) Frank Martin - Ballade for Flute & Piano
5-7) Walter Gieseking - Sonatine in E minor for Flute & Piano 
8) Philippe Gaubert - On a Clear Morning from "Three Water Colours" for Flute, Cello, Piano
9-14) Fikret Amirov - Six Pieces for Flute & Piano
15) Claude Debussy - Prelude a L'apres-Midi d'un Faune
