The few pieces that George Rochberg wrote for flute are as bold and individualistic as anything in his oeuvre. His ability to compose in an astonishing variety of voices is clearly shown in the Caprice Variations, based on Paganini’s famous melody, in homages to composers from Bach to Bartók. Christina Jennings’ transcriptions challenge the player with dynamic, technical and stylistic extremes.

Rochberg’s Ukiyo-e pieces are among his most beautiful and haunting works.

Praised for her virtuoso technique and rich tone, flautist Christina Jennings is an acknowledged expert in Rochberg’s music.
