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!
