Notes & Reviews:

"Here is some lovely and unusual material. Two pieces are new to me: the lovely and atmospheric Quintet for flute, string trio, and harp of 1957 and the imaginative Duo for violin and viola of 1946. The Jet Whistle for flute and cello of 1950 is better known. The Quintet and the Duo are both about 16 minutes, while The Jet Whistle is 10. The 'Song of the Black Swan' is known to me as a piece for cello and piano. Here it is played on violin and harp, though the violin plays it in the cello range. Since this threeminute piece isn't listed either in Groves or Bakers, I can't tell if it is the composer's transcription or not. Liner notes from some of the cello performances indicate that it was for cello and piano, transcribed by the composer for violin and piano, but that the tune comes from an earlier orchestral tone poem, so the harp may be in the original. The question tends to arise because the rest of the program is transcriptions by the flutist for flute and harp of five songs from various periods. The liner notes are not informative. The music is unfailingly attractive and interesting, as I would expect from this composer. And Mobius is a fine group." -ARG
