James Erber’s Traces Cycle for solo flute was recorded by Matteo Cesari and released in 2013 by Convivium Records. The album also includes ein andrer Hauch for piccolo.
We are pleased to hear that a new article on this CD has just been written at CultuurPakt:

A range of James Erber’s works, including ein andrer Hauch, is available for purchase through Composers Edition online shop, to which Traces Cycle will be added soon.
