Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Porter has a somewhat shallow and shimmery vibrato. Harding's playing is impeccable whether it is as an equal partner or as background. The sound presents these accomplished players admirably. Porter gave the premiere of Daugherty's concerto The Trail of Tears in 2010 and performed it in Carnegie Hall in 2012. Here we have his work Crystal for flute, alto flute, metal wind chimes, and piano. It is an arrangement of an orchestral piece made in 2006 and first played by the performers here. The flute and alto flute players sometimes blend in octaves, sometimes converse, stand apart making air sounds, and play the wind chimes in music meant to evoke gypsy fortune tellers.
