Notes & Reviews:

"Brown shows a creative approach to these concertos, which she performs on a wide-bored, Quantz-style flute. She performs caressing 'tenutos' and 'portatos' and bends just enough time in the slow movements. Though she sometimes overindulges in ornamental vibrato, she has an energetic technique and some of the most pointed staccato I have ever heard. The orchestra matches her ability to flip from the expression of joy to rage in a mere beat." - Johnson, ARG

'The performances are magnificent. Brown's technical command of her instrument is breathtaking... Only the loudest of cheers will do' (Goldberg)

'Rachel Brown gives performances it would be hard to better. Her agility and articulation are breathtaking. She and her hyper-alert orchestra realise all the highly strung volatility of Allegros and bring a rhapsodic freedom to the brooding slow movements' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Enthralling music, perceptively played' (International Record Review)

'This is a recording to treasure and it is above all the sombrely meditative Largo con sordini of the A major concerto that stays in my memory' (Gramophone)

'Both Goodman's ensemble and Rachel Brown have the full measure of these quirkily passionate pieces' (The Times)

'Brown's playing makes a highly plausible argument for enjoying the richness and diversity of these pieces.' (BBC Record Review)
