Description

Featuring Amy Coup, Liz Kell, Jane Nechin, And Faith Wasson

French flute music is a very particular compositional style, which exemplifies the flute’s lyrical capabilities above all else. This concept came to light in Paris around the 1860’s and emphasized the flute’s “richer and more vivid palette of tone colors and sonorities."
This style, which “pioneered a new expressiveness of tone and sensitivity of musicianship” has since become a typical standard to flute around the world. This modern flute sound is in great contrast to previous styles of flute composition and pedagogy, borne out of many coinciding influences which would result in the re-definition of flute music that we know today."
