A couple of gems round out the recording. Edie Hill’s This Floating World are musical illustrations of five haiku by the great Japanese poet Basho (translations by Robert Hass are included in the notes). On the strength of Chatterton’s performance – a sketch-pad that includes a sky-lark, the harvest moon, winter solitude, a petal shower, and the Milky Way – the piece instantly takes its place among the staples of the solo flute repertoire.
