Leone Buyse is former principal flutist with the Boston Symphony. Michael Webster is former principal clarinetist with the Rochester Philharmonic and the San Francisco Symphony.  Robert Moeling is an international soloist and chamber musician. They are now based at the Shepherd School of Music in Houston, Texas. The works are superb, exciting transcriptions by Michael Webster from four-hand piano literature. "World Wide Webster is a fine new offering...These three musicians play as one, and their sense of ensemble and creative interpretations define the essence of chamber music."Flute Talk "Performances here are excellent, with a seamless match between the two winds, and a coherent blend with Robert Moeling's buoyant piano textures. Recordings are very fine, and give a notably clear reproduction of Leone Buyse's distinctive, clear and, well, fluting tone..." Paul Ingram, Fanfare
