Florie Rothenberg

Voices Of Trees

ORIGIN CLASSICAL 33003

“...Florie Rothenberg wanted to push the envelope a bit...this duo works well...”
Adam Greenberg

Through her research of women composers, clarinetist Florie Rothenberg has amassed a thorough collection of contemporary works, forming the basis for her new recording, Voices of Trees. Along with the commissioned title piece by her musical accompanist, pianist Rachel Matthews, Rothenberg includes compositions by Joan Tower, Libby Larsen, and Priaulx Rainier. Noting the powerful and clear voice of each composer through these works, Rothenberg hopes to help move these pieces further into the clarinet repertoire.

REVIEWS:

Seattle-based clarinetist Florie Rothenberg wanted to push the envelope a bit in response to this, finding compositions from modern female composers specifically for the clarinet and piano.
