Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Pola Baytelman performs works for piano by American composers Joseph Fennimore, George Crumb and Lowell Liebermann. She is joined by flutist Jan Vinci in Katherine Hoover's Medieval Suite. Born in Chile, Baytelman has studied at the University of Chile's National Conservatory, the New England Conservatory and the University of Texas, Austin. She is an active recitalist who has toured extensively in China, Europe, Hong Kong, South America and across the United States. Her recording on Centaur of Schumann's Humoreske was listed by American Record Guide as one of the top performances of the work. This is her second recording for Albany Records. The first, From Chile to Cuba (TROY1116) received high praise from the press. Jan Vinci, Baytelman's colleague at Skidmore, where both are artistsin- residence, has been hailed as an "exquisite performer" by High Performance Review. She appears on two other recording on Albany Records, including a solo recording titled Global Flutescapes (TROY947).

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Katherine Hoover's work is the only one to include flute, and is an attractive suite with familiar gestures and forms and an agreeable. Crumb's music is, as always, rhapsodic, colorful, and atmospheric. Liebermann's well-known Gargoyles is entertaining. The artists play very well; the sound is fine.
