Editorial Reviews

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 in D Major.


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

This cd has a variety of pieces to fit every mood you could be in.
It is also full of performances that have to have been influenced by Clayton's amazing credentials and intelligence. The first piece is Renaissance Concerto by Lukas Foss(1922-2009). The first movement, Intrada, combines note bending with what sounds like a bird fluttering about. Then it takes up the feeling of a courtly dance with a Renaissance flavor. Baroque Interlude(after Rameau) introduces the harpsichord at the beginning and end. It sounds like a real Baroque sonata in form at first and then takes on a modern feel so that it feels a bit off kilter although the rhythms and notes and articulations are perfectly expressed. Recitative(after Monteverdi) sounds as if a modern flute was inserted into a Monteverdi composition and took off. Jouissance opens with strings, trumpet, and French horn taking solos. The flute enters with jollity and lots of flutter tonguing. Then it percussively answers the drum's rhythms, while still sounding like a recorder at a Renaissance fair. The flirty flute does a dance with the violins and then dances around with the tambourine shaking out rhythms with it.

The second piece on the cd is the Mozart Concerto in D Major, giving the listener a calming breath of the familiar. In the Allegro Aperto Clayton shows an amazing control on her opening high D and flexibility as she moves through different registers rapidly. She plays in a way that is understated and not overly flashy about the accomplishments which nevertheless shine through.
There is strength in her gentleness and finesse and she is like a sweet little sprite dancing through the concerto.
