Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Beth Anderson is a composer of new romantic music, text-sound works and music theater events. This disc contains some of her music written for flute, performed by noted flutist Andrew Bolotowsky.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Andrew Bolotowsky plays a variety of flutes, including baroque flute and shakuhachi. Since many of these selections are unaccompanied or for flute and piano, the sound affects the appeal of these otherwise committed performances. The collaborators are all quite good, as is Anderson in her supporting role.
