Synopsis

Album Description
When flutist Susan Glaser was contemplating a new CD of contemporary music she turned to Jennifer Higdon, one of America's most widely performed, most-recorded, and most popular composers today. Glaser was drawn to the variety and maturity of her writing. Not to mention that, not surprisingly, Higdon--who was trained as a flutist--had created a lot of pieces featuring that instrument. After delving into many scores and recordings, Glaser was so won over by Soliloquy that she decided to record an all-Higdon CD. But each and every piece here is compelling in its own way, she says, "...the expressive melodies and harmonic writing of Soliloquy, the rhythmic primacy of Zaka, the beautiful colors of Summer Shimmers."
