Melinda Wagner and Poul Ruders: Concertos

$ 14.99

Best of Year: Sunday Times of London



“This concerto will give contemporary flutists a challenge, and yet it has the potential to please any audience. Dunkel plays it beautifully, and the Westchester Philharmonic provides first-class support. Ruders’ work is a showpiece for orchestra and a demonstration of the possibilities inherent in disassembling and reassembling the theme...the engineering is a gorgeous ear-bath.” - Classical Net

“Wagner clearly thought carefully about the problems of balance and blend. She has created a magical framework in which to highlight the solo instrument. The sheer sound of this piece is utterly beguiling. Alternatively witty, warm, and wild, Concerto in Pieces is a masterpiece on a par with Britten’s own. Andrew Davis and the BBC Symphony Orchestra offer a dazzling performance that, in its way, is every bit as fine as that of Wagner’s Flute Concerto.” -
