ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Last Rose of Summer is a beautiful new recording by virtuoso flutist Donald Zook and pianist Steven Young, featuring rarely recorded masterpieces from the Romantic era. This unique collection includes the title song by Friedfrich Kuhlau (based on the traditional Irish air), a brilliant set of variations by virtually unknown composer Giovanni Paggi, a programmatic sonata by Jules Mouquet using the legendary Greek god Pan as its principal protagonist, Josef Rheinberger's expansive rhapsody, his only chamber work for flute and piano, and an imposing concerto by the relatively unknown composer Jules Demersseman representing the virtuosic school of French flutists. The Romantic era masterpieces are recorded by Donald Zook, flutist, and Steven Young, pianist. Donald Zook is head of the woodwind department of the South Shore Conservatory in Hingham and Duxbury, Massachusetts. He also teaches flute on the faculty of Bridgewater State College and Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Massachusetts. Mr. Zook made his solo debut at Orchestra Hall in Chicago. He earned his Bachelor of Music, magna cum laude, from the American Conservatory College. Mr. Zook has appeared as a soloist and in chamber ensembles throughout New England, the Midwest, and New York, delighting audiences with his passion, technique, and virtuosity. As an advocate of new music, Mr. Zook has premiered several new works for the flute. Mr. Zook is the founder, music director, and conductor of one of the largest flute symphonies in the United States, the South Shore Conservatory Flute Symphony. Steven Young, pianist, is chairperson of the music department at Bridgewater State College where he conducts the collegiate choral ensembles and teaches advanced courses in music theory and analysis. He holds degrees from Barrington College, New England Conservatory of Music, and Boston University. He is the organist/music director at the Old South Union Church in South Weymouth, Massachusetts. Dr. Young, an active recitalist, has performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. His research has brought many unknown works to the concert stage.

Excellent CD. Well done!
This CD has a great selection of music all of it wonderful but I am most partial to Kuhlau's "The Last Rose of Summer". Zook's performance for this piece is memorable.
