Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

University of Michigan Professor Amy Porter performs transcriptions of Bach's cello suites for flute.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
It is probably important to note first that this recording uses a modern flute; in fact, the booklet tells us that it is a 14k gold Muramatsu instrument. Overall, this playing is very fine and refined. In contrast to the respectful character of Porter's approach, to her credit, she is willing to take considerable liberty with the tempo. She has a vibrant sound and excellent control over the breathing, the wide intervals she plays, and the intonation.
