Flutist Kris Palmer made her New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 2001 to rave reviews as a winner in the Artists International Competition. The New York Concert Review called Palmer’s performance “incisive and expressive…particularly enchanting…with sensuous tone and pace.” Noted for her performances of music from the eighteenth century, Kris has performed the concerti of C.P.E. Bach and Mozart in the United States and Europe, and she is the author of the book, Ornamentation According to C.P.E. Bach and J.J. Quantz. The New York Concert Review states, “Palmer is clearly among the few current performers on any instrument to fully understand the nature of Baroque music.” Kris is a second-prize winner in the National Flute Association’s Young Artist Competition, a first-prize winner in the Ruth Burr Awards in Houston, and a first-prize winner in the Carmel Chamber Music Society Competition.
