Notes & Reviews:

Hailed by The Washington Post as "a savvy, sensitive composer with a keen ear, an innate sense of form and a generous dash of pure esprit," Jennifer Higdon is one of America's most frequently performed composers. Her works have received many awards, including two awards from the American Academy of Arts & Letters and a Grammy Award for Contemporary Composition. Higdon's writing style is considered neo-romantic, and is extremely listenable - her music appeals to a wide-ranging audience. Flutist Susan Glaser has appeared internationally as a soloist at the world's most prestigious concert halls.
