Considered “a flautist’s dream composer” (BBC Music Magazine) Liebermann’s writing is full of optimistic, audience-friendly and tuneful melodies with rapid-fire fingering passages that showcase the technical prowess of the soloist. Katherine Bryan stated: “I feel that Lowell Liebermann’s concerto encompasses all the emotions and colours of which the flute is so brilliantly capable and it is for me, quite simply a 20th-century virtuoso masterpiece, and thrilling to play.”
The inclusion of works by Hüe, Nielsen and Poulenc in the programme shows the particular diversity of the flute, demonstrating the variety of repertoire composed for the instrument during the twentieth century.
Katherine Bryan is a prize-winning flautist; she has appeared as a concerto soloist with leading orchestras worldwide, including the Helsinki Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Royal Scottish National, Hallé, Nürnberger Symphoniker, New York Philharmonic and English Baroque orchestras. Katherine balances her solo career with her role as Principal Flautist with the RSNO, a position she has held since the age of 21. Katherine was a prize-winner at the Royal Overseas League Music Competition in London, the Young Concert Artists Competition in New York and was a finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year for three consecutive competitions. Katherine has released three acclaimed recordings with Linn Records.
