Katherine Bryan - Liebermann Flute Concerto - The Scotsman


25 October 2010
The Scotsman
Kenneth Walton
5 Stars

Regular fans of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra will be well aware of principal flautist Katherine Bryan's prowess as both an orchestral player and concerto artist. Here she is in the latter role in an exquisite debut recording that combines Lowell Liebermann's gorgeous Flute Concerto (written for James Galway and laden with plentiful shades of Prokofiev) with the flirtatious virtuosity of Poulenc's Flute Sonata (orchestrated by Lennox Berkeley), an exotic little Debussy-flavoured Fantasie by Georges Hüe, and Carl Nielsen's playful Flute Concerto. Bryan's natural musicality breathes an alluring quality into every performance, accompanied by her RSNO colleagues under conductor Paul Daniel.
