“The concert began with Dr. Kris Palmer playing the alto flute accompanied by piano on ‘Nicht Schnell,’ which despite the title (‘not fast’ in German) went by perhaps too fast as hearing the alto flute as a feature is not a common occurrence.  Dr. Palmer played to the piece’s strengths and let the audience enjoy the rich tone of the alto.”
