Facing a full orchestra is daunting in itself; facing it with such a delicate instrument as the flute requires extraordinary courage. Laura Cioffi does not seem to have had any such issues ... (she) managed to transmit a powerful performance.

Laura’s extended technique skills are superb and is literally ON FIRE when asked to play contemporary and avant garde repertoire. I recommend her to you most highly, a highly intelligent and most musical flautist!!
