..."If you stopped paying attention to new classical music after Britten and Shostakovich died, it's time to tune in again. The famous flutist has put his weight behind one of America's most gifted "new tonalist" composers, with electrifying results. Liebermann's three concertos are custom-made for listeners who find 12-tone music ugly and minimalism simple-minded. The harmonies are savory, the scoring luminous - and, yes, you can hum the tunes."

Terry Teachout in Time Magazine

..."The remarkable American composer Lowell Liebermann has made quite a reputation for himself among flute players. This wonderful new recording shows the rest of us why. The three concertos on it are beautiful - it's the kind of music you want to replay immediately after hearing it for the first time.
