Notes & Reviews:

The late 18th and early 19th century repertory of François Devienne, Saverio Mercadante, and Bernhard Romberg provide a fascinating counterpoint of their respective French, Neopolitan and German geographic and stylistic flowering of styles and influences and are presented here with lively grace and intelligence by the fine flute work of Soyoung Lee anchoring these concertos that are among the best known of these composers' repertoire. With the nimble playing of the Ensemble of Tokyo conducted by Chang-Kook Kim.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Soyoung Lee is a Korean flutist who attended Oberlin and Yale and has since developed a considerable career as a soloist and orchestral player in Korea. In recent years, she judged international competitions held in Japan, China, and Israel. Her playing, then, is very fine and refined; and you'll especially appreciate her silvery high notes when composers give her the chance to soar above the orchestra.
