Flute Mystery is the name of a composition and an album of music that has inspired me and I highly recommend it to you!
I recently blogged about a new program of music I am composing, Butterfly Zone, which I plan to perform in the fall or winter of 2016. The music is “chamber jazz,” a fusion of orchestral sounds with the excitement of jazz improvisation.
As a aid to composing, I have been listening to much more classical music and watching classical performances on video. I stumbled across a video, “Exhaling Music,” a new award-winning documentary featuring composer Flint Juventino Beppe, Sir James Galway, Emily Beynon, Catherine Beynon, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Philharmonia Orchestra which includes footage from the recording sessions of the Grammy-nominated album Flute Mystery. See Spotify playlist below:
The video provided wonderful insights into the life and process of a gifted composer to whom I felt very connected. The music is beautiful , powerful and inspiring. Listening has already helped me to clarify my music and write more effectively and to tap into my experience to better express the music within me.
If you are a flutist or classical music lover you will rush to explore this music for yourself.
For me – I am writing even more passionately and I can’t wait to share the results with you in Butterfly Zone.
