Clinton on Clinton

About the CD


We are proud to be able to showcase Clinton’s music on his flutes at long last. This project has been a labor of love and we hope you will want to take a listen to some lovely music that has been rediscovered and will hopefully take its place in the canon of flute repertoire!
