Notes & Reviews:

Commemorating Rebecca Henderson's illustrious career of championing new music for the oboe, this album includes five brilliant new commissions or premiers of chamber music with oboe. Her solo CD, ...is but a dream, has been hailed by critics as exquisite...a CD that you will play over and over (Gramophone), and superb...a wonderfully vibrant, almost luscious sound (American Record Guide). Featuring a stellar line-up of performers, including Henderson, Kristin Wolfe Jenson, Sheryl Cohen, Susan Hatch Tomiekwicz, and Rebekah Heller, this album is a rare assortment of new and attractive ensemble music for woodwinds that is sure to delight.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Rebecca Henderson's playing is wonderful, and she has programmed an interesting group of works. I thoroughly enjoyed her collaboration with Carolyn Hove in a recent release of English horn, oboe, and piano works (Crystal 823, Nov/Dec 2011). I liked that program better than this one.
