DCD 080 - Flute Moments

In episode #80 of the "DCD Classical 'Cast" we feature selections from "Flute Moments with Teresa Beaman."

Teresa Beaman is a reknowned performer and educator. She's toured extensively as a flute soloist, and has commissioned several works for her instrument. "Flute Moments" is a collection of works by 20th Century American composers.

In our podcast, we play excerpts from three of them: Lowell Liebermann, Robert Muczynski, and Edwin Burton. The latter composed his Sonatina for flutist Samuel Baron. Baron was one of Beaman's teachers, giving this work especial significance for Beaman.
