AllMusic Review by

Six compositions by six composers for this rather unusual, very talented and musical duet. Contains: Claudio Pompili Lo Spécchio del Fiore (The Flower Looking-Glass) (1988) a lovely, florid baroque flute solo; Christopher Butterfield Flamingo Limo (1988) a sweetly humorous duet for flute and vibraphone; John Abram's gentle and odd urban music Aeneid Music V (1988) for Baroque flute, log drum, prepared guitar, and a tape of rainfall on a ghetto blaster portable discplayer; Owen Underhill Partita (1983) for marimba; Michael J. Baker's charming Bird in Hand (1990) for Baroque flute, vibraphone and tape; and Rudolf Komorous The Necklace of Clear Understanding (1986), a plaintive and lyrical work for Baroque flute solo.
