Performed by CSU faculty artists Michelle Stanley, joined by Jeff LaQuatra, the recital creates two firsts: music from the flutist’s latest album Nouvelle Vie, and the world premiere of a newly commissioned work for flute and guitar by Bryan Johanson and James McGuire. The new album, released by Navona Records, includes previously unrecorded French flute works from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. “Firsts are always exciting! With the performance of repertoire from my latest album of French music and the performance of two brand new commissions for flute and guitar, we are excited to share this concert with our Fort Collins audience,” said Stanley.
