According to London’s Sunday Times, flutist Robert Stallman “dazzles because of his penetrating artistry”. This artistry distinguishes all facets of Stallman’s career as soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, editor/arranger and impresario. His schedule has included appearances at New York's Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, Boston’s Symphony Hall and Jordan Hall, London's Wigmore Hall, Paris’s Salle Pleyel, Vienna's Konzerthaus and Tokyo's Suntory Hall, as well as guest performances with the American Symphony, Strings of the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic and eminent chamber orchestras such as the
Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, the Czech Chamber Orchestra and the Suk Chamber Orchestra.
A guest artist at many festivals over the years, including Mostly Mozart (New York), Musique à Cimiez (France), Cesky Krumlov (Czech Republic), and Kuhmo (Finland), In 2015, Robert was invited to be the first American soloist featured at the Norsk Flute Festival (Norway) in their long history.

For twenty seasons he directed the Marblehead Summer Music Festival on Boston’s North Shore, presenting “special occasions in every sense of the word” (The Boston Globe), and attracting young artists who now are among the world’s musical elite.
