This recording is an outgrowth of the eighty-fifth birthday tribute to Otto Luening presented by the New York Flute Club at CAMI Hall, New York City, on February 24, 1985.

Otto Luening has been an influential musical force for most of the twentieth century. His diverse activities in music have included composition, conducting, writing and teaching. Additionally, Otto Luening is a founding father of CRI, and has served as an organizer and advisor to several musical organizations.

The flute has played an indispensable role in Luening’s life. In addition to his activities as a performing flutist, Luening has written an extensive corpus of works for
flute, from solo and orchestral works through his pioneering electronic pieces.
The five other composers whose works appear on this recording—Roger Goeb, John Heiss, Ulysses Kay, Ezra Laderman and Harvey Sollberger—have been associated with Luening for decades. Perhaps it is only coincidental, but it is interesting to note that all but one of these composers have played the flute at one time or another. Flutists or not, these five composers all acknowledge with deep gratitude the contributions Otto Luening has made for American musical life.


This title, originally issued on the CRI label, is now available for order from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).
