Notes & Reviews:

Attracted by a delightful fusion of early music sonorities with modern expressiveness, the three composers in this amazingly rich and varied program build on the magnificent harpsichord concerto legacy of J. S. Bach. John Rutter's beautiful Suite Antique is full of rich and haunting themes, with a significant solo flute part and a jazzy Waltz which is as much Brubeck as Bach. Philip Glass delivers an exciting experience of virtuoso instrumental blending and solo expressiveness, and with typical wit and elegance. Jean Francaix's Concerto is terrific fun throughout.
