Product Description


 

April Clayton, flute, with the BYU Chamber Orchestra, premiers two new flute concertos by contemporary composers Todd Coleman and Murray Boren. Also included on this album are Lukas Foss’ Renaissance Concerto and Mozart’s Concerto for Flute.

"It's a rare pleasure to work with an artist of international renown. As she flies through the demanding Renaissance Concerto (Lukas Foss) I'm thinking April Clayton has to be magic. With the exception of Mozart's Concerto for Flute, this is a program of newer music. The BYU Chamber Orchestra is in fine supportive form all the way as Clayton premieres her friend Todd Coleman's Flute Concerto and her prolific colleague Murray Boren's Elegy for Flute, which, surprisingly, is his last work before announcing a creative hiatus. For me, experiencing the flute horizons of April Clayton has been a treasured highlight of my musical life."
—Ron Simpson, producer
