The works on this recording are recently composed flute pieces by six distinguished senior American composers from the generation born in the fist quarter of the 20th century (1900-1926). All of the works have been written by these composers at age 65 or older - autumn rhythms and all represent a new departure for each. Four of the works are for the one keyed wooden baroque flute - the flute for which Bach and Mozart composed their flute music. The instrument is now enjoying a remarkable revival as part of the early music movement. On this recording it is heard as a living voice of contemporary American music. The two other works are for the Boehm-system flute - the standard concert flute of today. One was written to be played while viewing images of four great American abstract paintings. The other explores the unusual sonorities produced by an ensemble of twelve flutes.

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).
