The Flute Network, November 2005

Garrison is just “superior” both in brilliant technique and musicianship.
Leonard Garrison, who currently teaches flute at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma as well as playing flute and piccolo with the Tulsa Philharmonic Orchestra and Opera, is well-known to the flute community from his service to the N.F.A and his convention performances, and he is a flutist worthy of much wider recognition and acclaim. This outstanding recording shows that he truly deserves to wear the mantle of the “caped crusader”. On this recording he impressively demonstrates his prowess and mastery of the techniques and difficulties of contemporary music for flute, piccolo, and alto flute in works with piano accompaniment (Klaus Wustoff’s Drei Mobiles, Alec Wilder’s Sonata No. 1, and Roger Price’s Credo), and flute and electronic sounds (the title track, Meyer Kuperman’s Superflute and Howard Sandroff’s Chant de femmes), and works for flute/piccolo alone (Gordon Jacob’s The Pied Piper, and Michael Colquhoun’s delightful Latin-tinged Charanga.) Several of these works are not widely known or currently available on other recordings, and it nice to hear fresh modern music that is inventive and intriguing. Garrison’s playing is sensitive and expressive while traversing the tightwire and performing the flying feats of agility required by the avant-garde style. He is just “superior” both in brilliant technique and musicianship. (Also, you will find interesting his extensive website with valuable information on piccolo technique, practicing, and flute literature.
