“[...] As required of any well executed performances of contemporary compositions, Minelli warms the listener up to her technical prowess, a mere taster of what’s to come.. 
 this album successfully shows off Minelli ‘ s skilled capability of handling contemporary repertoire and makes an interesting listen as well as an example for students of contemporary repertoire. “

Diljeet Bhachu - The British Flute Society, Pan

“Minelli is clearly a formidable exponent of the contemporary flute repertoire.”

Jonathan Woolf - Music Web International

“Sara Minelli [...] shows her technical skills off in a superb manner. None of the requirements of the various pieces seems to disturb her, and the result is a digest of dazzling advanced techniques”

Robert Hugill - Planet Hughill

"Sara Minelli ‘s New Resonances for Flute (EMA Vinci) takes this sense of subversion even further – her flute is something to create breathy textures, popping effects, unexpected trills and drowsy slurs”

John Lewis - The Guardian



The disc was released after a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for its launch at Estorick Collection, London.

Here’s the link to the campaign with information about the project, the composers involved and the event:
