A c k n o w l e d g e m e n t s
In October of 2001 I started to record a CD. I got three pieces "in the can" and then life happened. The recordings
have been sitting on my desk waiting to be edited since then, squarely in the category of "when I get around to it"!
One of the silver linings of the Stay at Home orders during the global pandemic has been finally being able
to make time for just such a project.
Without the help and encouragement of my dear, sweet husband, Gernot Wolfgang, completing the editing of these recordings would not have been possible. My heartfelt thanks go to him, my family and my teachers, Karl Öhlberger and
John Casagrande, who are sadly no longer with us, and Mordechai Rechtman, for their unfailing support and guidance.
I would also like to express my deep gratitude to the musicians in these recordings who helped bring the music to life with their consummate artistry. They include current and former members of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Patricia Mabee, principal keyboardist, Andrew Shulman, principal cellist and Susan Greenberg, flutist, as well as Wenzel Fuchs, principal clarinetist of the Berlin Philharmonic, and Vicki Ray, head of keyboard studies at the California Institute of the Arts.
In addition, many thanks to the recording engineers who captured everything so wonderfully: Fred Vogler, Gerhard Harrer, and mastering engineer Rich Breen. I would also like to give a shout out to Knut Sønstevold, a fellow Öhlberger student,
whose recording of the Boutry first introduced me to and inspired me to learn the piece.
