Fanfare Magazine feature article, by Peter Burwasser

 

"These pieces are excellent additions to the flute, clarinet, and piano repertoire or clarinet and piano repertoire. 
The Scott/Garrison Duo accompanied by Rajung Yang brings this music to life and set the bar high for outstanding 
chamber music performance."   - Patricia George, The Instrumentalist magazine, April 2013.

"A vibrant disc of varied chamber music for flute, clarinet, and piano from Daniel Dorff. 
His album is titled Perennials, and the material conjures brilliant floral bouquets: 
upbeat jazzy rhythms, luminous color and an elegant tribute to Bach. 
Dorff's good humor makes many appearances. 
The wonderful performances match the éclat of the music." - Peter Burwasser, Philadelphia City Paper, 3/12/13.
