The brilliant American flutist Laurel Ann Maurer returns to 4Tay with another wonderful collection of New American Music – this time celebrating the American Woman Composer. Selections by Libby Larsen, Claire Polin, Gladys Nordenstrom, Gwyneth Walker and Vivian Fine represent a superb cross-section of American musical thinking from the latter half of the 20th Century. New works by Marie Barker Nelson and Jennifer Higdon, both written for Laurel Ann Maurer, point a strong direction for the instrument’s future. An important addition to the recorded legacy of American Music, presented by the woman whom Julius Baker called “one of our outstanding and gifted flutists.” Sensitive piano accompaniment by Joanne Pearce Martin.
