Notes & Reviews:

This release features contemporary works for clarinet and piano from American composers including world premieres of Abbie Betinis' "Nattsanger" and Roshanne Etezady's "Bright Angel", inspired by the architectural structures of Mary Jane Colter in the Grand Canyon; Libby Larsen's "Licorice Stick" and Joan Tower's "Fantasy... Those Harbor Lights".

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Luevano has great energy, a pleasant tone, and solid fingers. Koga is solid at the keyboard, granting each score the essential character and rhythmic integrity. Kesselman steals the show in the Betinis with exceptional color and clarity, superb diction, and profoundly heartfelt phrasing; her command of both traditional lyricism and Sprechstimme is breathtaking. Betinis is a beautiful work in its own right, full of expert craft and deeply stirring sentiment, and clarinetists and vocalists alike need to check out this important contribution to their repertoire.
