Music for a Sunday Afternoon

American Chamber Works for Flute, Clarinet, Piano and String Orchestra Laurel Ann Maurer, flute Russell Harlow, clarinet John Jensen, piano

“Balance, ensemble and intonation are excellent throughout, and some of the selections are charming, particularly the Suite by Wilder and the work by Kraft, which occassionally has shades of ragtime.”

“I like her playing … she is aggressive and dynamic … Flutists should pick this up, because these are excellent compositions and well played.”

“an intriguing, flute-centric disc… Flutist Laurel Ann Maurer, who takes the lioness´ share of work in this programme, has a solid technique herself and surrounds herself with some able collaborators…”
