  USA: Flute concertos
  ... Flutist Michael Faust was an admirable soloist, with a strong lyrical feeling, solid technique and a good sense of the music's inherent humor.
St.Louis Post-Dispatch



  The soloist was the brilliant flute virtuoso Michael Faust. ... He proved fully as exciting in the brilliant display and charming lyricism required by Faure's Fantasie and Ibert's Concerto as he was in the past seasons in the complexities of Bach. ... He seemed to have a complete identification with the witty sparkle and sinuous melodies of these French masters.
Spokesman-Review, Spokane



  ... In so doing, Schuller may also have prepared the audience to receive his own flute (and piccolo) concerto more openly, Schuller's work is all pastels, well-crafted in traditional three-movement format, with a very effective and poignant second movement. He grapples well with the perennial problem of making the flute audible, using it restlessly at times so that it stands out like a vibrant dancer in front of a stationary corps, or letting it speak with mournful solitude against a silent or much reduced orchestra. Michael Faust was an admirable soloist, with a strong lyrical feeling, solid technique and a good sense of the music's inherent humor.
