“ Brinckman plays with an absolutely gorgeous tone throughout the full range of all the instruments – even the sensuous, breathy contrabass flute, which really doesn’t call for much bel canto and Longshore’s understated virtuosity is percussion poetry at its best” – Joshua Cheek
“East West Continuo, an ensemble of flute and string instruments based in Portland, Oregon, traverse many cultures in Glass Sky, a title taken from a work by flutist-founder, Tessa Brinckman. The six pieces reveal influences from Asia, Africa and Europe, with a leaning towards diverse colors, folk-oriented writing and tone-painting. The repertoire is haunting and attractive, the playing marked by temperament and subtle inflection…” – Donald Rosenburg (Gramophone)
