Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Lim’s Mozart CD with GENIUN was received to great accolades, and now she shows her abilities as a sensitive chamber musician. Joining Lim is the fantastic young oboist Katherine Needleman, who makes her GENUIN debut with this album. The program of this recording displays a compelling combination of canonical works of the oboe repertoire (Schumann and Poulenc) and an exciting rediscovery of the Pavel Haas Suite. This is the premier recording of David Ludwig’s Pléaden, a piece played by Katherine Needleman with particular attention, as it is a seven movement sonata dedicated to her.
