Flute Music of New York is a collaboration between American Composers Alliance and New York Women Composers, Inc., and it features nine works for solo flute by the overlapping members of both organizations.

Some of these works are newly presented here, typeset from manuscripts or re-engraved to fix errors. One work, Gina Genova's 'For Solo Flute', was recovered during the creation of  the anthology. Two works are relatively well-known; attendees or followers of the National Flute Association will recognize Marilyn Bliss's 'Murali' from NFA competitions, and fans of Nina Assimakopoulos will recognize Margaret Fairlie-Kennedy's 'Spirit Man' from the performances that bloomed after Assimakopoulos's 2015 album 'Vayu' was released.

From the perspective of a western classical flutist, all nine works are attractive and share a general attention to motivic development. None are strictly atonal, though several works (Bliss's 'Encounter', Ann Silsbee's 'Three Chants') develop more through structure than through natural or synthetic diatonicism. Sarah Meneely-Kyder's 'Air' and 'Water' drift melodically; the first improvisationally, the second song-like. The most recent work, Joyce Hope Suskind's 'Celebration', stands out as a rich venture into a late Baroque/early Classical style.
