The New York Times described Ms. Hansen’s flute playing as “irresistibly lyrical” and praised her “considerable coloristic variety.” A graduate of The Juilliard School, she is winner of the New York Flute Club Competition and was featured in the Emmy award winning CBS TV documentary: “Juilliard & Beyond – A Life in Music.” Formerly principal flutist of the Mexico City Philharmonic, her recording of Rodrigo’s Concierto Pastoral for Flute with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (EMI) received critical acclaim. She also recorded Carl Niëlsen’s Flute Concerto with Dorrit Mattson and New York Scandia Symphony (Centaur), which was a “Best of the Year” selection by Fanfare. They later performed this concerto at a sold-out concert at Symphony Space honoring the 150th anniversaries of Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius. Ms. Hansen is solo flutist with the Grammy nominated North/South Consonance Ensemble and featured on several world-premiere concerto recordings. She also performs with All Seasons Chamber players and is Flute Professor at Kean University.
