Adrienne Albert's music, which I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to, has three A's going for it: It is attractive, accessible, and atmospheric." Arnold Steinhardt, First Violinist The Guarnieri String Quartet The Resonance Flute Consort Works by Adrienne Albert, Anne McGinty, Catherine McMichael and others. November 19, 2006 By Wayne Behlendorf ...Most interesting was Mirror Images (2002) by Adrienne Albert, a work originally composed for saxophone quartet. The shifting keys and lyrical moods, evocative of later Debussy, showed that the transition from saxophone to flutes probably added to the already wistful aspects of this dreamlike piece. One wished for more.
