Amy Porter is performing American flute concerti to critical acclaim. When she performed and recorded her commissioned concerto “Trail of Tears” by Michael Daugherty with the Albany (NY) Symphony in May 2015, The Albany Times Union wrote: "The focus remained on Porter’s beautiful tone color and Daugherty’s imaginative deployment of the orchestra." American Record Guide has lauded her playing for having "an innocent American lyricism..." and reviewers for annarbor.com write about her live performances, “Amy Porter deeply imbues her performance with a sense of narrative and of speech and, yes, drama.”

Amy Porter, the concert's featured soloist, seemed at one with the third work, Michael Daugherty's "Trail of Tears," a concerto for flute and orchestra. She premiered the piece a decade ago, and has clearly achieved a close identification with its astonishing interpretive and technical demands.
