Ned ROREM: Flute Concerto, Violin Concerto, Pilgrims 

Jeffrey Khaner (flute), Philippe Quint (violin)

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, José Serebrier


The new Naxos CD of Ned Rorem’s Flute and Violin Concertos, featuring Philadelphia Orchestra flutist Jeffrey Khaner, violinist Philippe Quint, conductor José Serebrier, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, was just released yesterday and already it has received some excellent critical response.

All the wit found in earlier works is here (the Flute Concerto), but put to more serious purpose . . . Rorem, in his 80th year (is) exploring new territory with more invention than ever before.  Flutist Khaner plays with the authority of one who both knows the territory well and is happy to maintain elements of mystery.”  -- David Patrick Stearns, Philadelphia Inquirer

A classic album.  Satisfying and beautiful music that has about it a rippling current of vitality.” -- Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International

“I got taken in by the snake-like beauty of this intoxicating piece . . . Truly something of a masterpiece.” -- Daniel Felsenfeld, URGE Classical Informer


“Jeffrey Khaner crafts a colorful reading . . . Philip (sic) Quint captures the fleeting moods in Rorem’s six-movement violin concerto.  His taut playing invigorates the music.”

-- Robert Baxter, Courier-Post (Southern New Jersey)
