Bravo to the Philadelphia Flute Quartet! It’s been an impressive delight to hear your performances swing and bubble with gusto and elegance! Philadelphia is fortunate to have you as part of the music scene playing music by locally-based composers as well as the rich standard repertoire.
The Philadelphia Flute Quartet is a great sounding group of seasoned music professionals who bring to each performance their years of experience and their superior musicianship …I am delighted every time I hear them perform one of my pieces! Bravo PFQ!
“The Philadelphia Flute Quartet has performed my composition, One for Four, on several occasions. They perform it beautifully and their concerts are always entertaining.”
“My discovery of the Philadelphia Flute Quartet happily coincided with taking up my flute again in later life, and hearing them perform was—and continues to be –inspirational. The virtuosity of the quartet’s playing and the variety of music they perform makes every performance both pleasurable and educational. The quartet’s members have also been generous in contributing their time and talent to enriching the greater Philadelphia cultural community and they genuinely care about bringing music to all people who live and work in the area.”
“The Philadelphia Flute Quartet’s incredibly talented members, Thomas Meany, Christine Hansen, Kathleen Brown and Anne Levinson give listeners a wonderful ensemble of the flute, piccolo, alto and bass flute. There is a lot of flashing of silver as the players switch out from one instrument to the next between pieces both classical, Broadway and jazz. I have to admit I didn’t think I would be a fan of a flute ensemble but the Philadelphia Flute Quartet has won me over with their sound – so rich with the alto and bass flutes but also perfectly in sync. The blend is just perfect. And their choices of arrangements are excellent. Go see them if you get a chance. It is a satisfying, relaxing and exciting experience for all the senses!”
