âI admire the courage of Jeanne Baxtresser for putting together a compilation CD of some of her favorite music. It is not a thinly veiled effort to repackage older recordings in the interest of greater profit; it is a sincere and loving offer to the world. Flutists and non-flutists alike will enjoy this remarkable playing and varied repertoireâ¦Her effortless technique still makes my head spin.ââChristopher Chaffee, American Record Guide, Jan/Feb 2007
âOrchestral players occasionally need to declare their artistic independence by turning to music on a more intimate scale sans conductor. Jeanne Baxtresserâs two compilation releases document her gleaming artistry as recitalist and chamber player during the periods she served as principal flute of the Toronto Symphony and the New York Philharmonic. Baxtresserâs sound is warm, kaleidoscopic in colours and even throughout the registers. But she goes beyond tonal lustre and technical élan to explore the expressive possibilities in this multitude of pieces.
âThe discs have one overlap, Barberâs Canzone, Op 38a, though in performances with different pianists. The performance with Israela Margalit is more expansive, but both capture the sad beauty of music Barber orchestrated for the second movement of his Piano Concerto. Baxrtesserâs collaborations with colleagues from the Philharmonic and others are captivating, and, as she states in programme-notes, real or extended family affairs, with contributions from her mother, pianist Margaret Baxtresser, and her husband, bassoonist David Carroll. Flautist Baxtresser savours the sunny Classical interplay in Devienneâs Duo for flute and viola with Philharmonic principal Cynthia Phelps, and shares the Poulenc-influenced material in Madeleine Dringâs Trio for flute, oboe and piano with oboist Joseph Robinson (a former Philharmonic principal) and pianist Pedja Muzijevic. The splendidly shaded performance of Barberâs poignant and chipper Summer Music for wind quintet features Baxtresser and Robinson with more superlative Philharmonic chums.
âIn the tradition of wind and brass players who pine for great repertoire, Baxtresser often turns to transcriptions on her âcollection of my favouritesâ. Among the impressive reworkings is Debussyâs Prélude á Lâaprés-midi dâun faune for flute and piano, in which Baxtresser radiantly shapes the lyrical material beyond her instrumentâs famous phrases. She offers a snazzy version of Gershwinâs âSomeone to Watch Over Meâ and joins the Eric Robertson Trio in a rendition of Claude Bollingâs Suite for flute and jazz trio that strikes my ears as even more irresistible than the original Rampal recording.â
âFrom âAn orchestral principal shows her star quality as she steps up to the frontâ by Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone, January 2007
âThe whole programme is a joy from beginning to end and shows Ms. Baxtresserâs prowess in a diversity of stylesâ¦What most of all characterises her playing is balance and aristocracy, which doesnât exclude intensity and emotion. On the first seven tracks she is partnered by Andrew Davis, who was principal conductor of the Toronto Symphony at the time, [and who] besides being one of his generationâs leading conductors, was also a brilliant pianist and organist! The interplay between these two full-blood musicians is admirableâ¦As an encore Baxtresser, together with her pianist mother, play Two Bits, folk music-inspired pieces by Henry Cowell, who had a special relation to Margaret Baxtresser since he composed a piece for her New York debut. This is a live recording and the applause at the end is well deserved and could just as well concern the whole programme.ââGoran Forsling, MusicWeb International
âMSR Classicsâ Jeanne Baxtresser: A Collection of my Favorites is like a gift from the heavens to flute playersâ¦Baxtresser has long been established as one of the very best in her field, as principal flute in the New York Philharmonicâ¦Baxtresserâs tone on the flute never wears out oneâs ears; it is pure, yet warm and dark.ââDavid N. Lewis, All Music Guide, 2006
âJeanne BaxtresserâA Collection of my Favorites contains a huge variety of repertoire, much of which I have never heard on a recording beforeâ¦I was moved nearly to tears by Ms. Baxtresserâs incredibly sensitive and touching performance of âNocturne in C-sharp minorâ, by Chopin.ââLarry Krantz, Larry Krantz Flute Pages, Oct. 2006
Jeanne Baxtresser has held principal positions with three major orchestras, culminating in her 15-year tenure as Solo Flutist of the New York Philharmonic. Making her heralded debut with the Minnesota Orchestra at age 14, Ms. Baxtresser began her professional career as Principal Flutist of the Montreal Symphony immediately following her graduation from The Juilliard School, where she studied with Julius Baker. She was subsequently appointed Principal Flute of the Toronto Symphony before being invited by Music Director Zubin Mehta to join the New York Philharmonic. Ms. Baxtresser appeared as soloist with the New York Philharmonic on more than fifty occasions, and has been featured as a soloist across North America and Europe.
Recipient of the National Flute Associationâs Lifetime Achievement Award for significant, lasting contributions to the flute world, Ms. Baxtresser was also awarded the National Medal of Arts from the Interlochen Center for the Arts. She is recognized internationally as a leading recording artist, author, and lecturer.
In great demand as a teacher, many of Ms. Baxtresserâs students occupy principal and section positions in major orchestras throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. While in New York, Ms. Baxtresser served on the faculties of The Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of Music. In 1998, she was appointed the Vira I. Heinz Professor of Flute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where she has attracted many outstanding flute students from around the world. Ms. Baxtresser was also named University Professor, Carnegie Mellon Universityâs most distinguished professorial position awarded to those individuals who have achieved exceptional international recognition.
Ms. Baxtresserâs exceptional career as a recitalist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician has produced numerous recordings, including New York LegendsâJeanne Baxtresser (Cala), Jeanne BaxtresserâA Collection of My Favorites (MSR Classics), andChamber Music for Flute (Cala), featuring her performances with principal players of the New York Philharmonic. She has recorded many of the major symphonic works with the New York Philharmonic under Leonard Bernstein, Zubin Mehta and Kurt Masur.
Ms. Baxtresserâs acclaimed first book, Orchestral Excerpts for Flute with Piano Accompaniment (Theodore Presser), has been re-released in a new revised edition. This book and a companion CD, Orchestral Excerpts for Flute with Spoken Commentary(Summit), have become a vital part of flute pedagogy. Her subsequent book, Great Flute Duos from the Orchestral Repertoire was named the 2004 winner of the National Flute Associationâs Newly Published Music Competition. She is currently working on two new books of virtuoso flute excerpts.
