I’m just back from Seoul, South Korea, where pianist Chee Hyeon Choi and I performed a recital at the Praum Musical Instrument Museum. While there, I taught classes for 14 outstanding students from the studio of Soyoung Lee. Couldn’t have been a better week!
Chee Hyeon and I are now planning a chamber music recital with our Bradley University colleagues: Sunday afternoon, September 9, 2018, 3:00, Dingeldine Music Center on the Bradley University campus. Before that, I’m off to the National Flute Association convention in Orlando. I currently serve as President of the Board of Directors.
Hope you’ll get to know my new book, Notes for Flutists: A Guide to the Repertoire. It offers, in a single volume, contextual and analytical information about 35 of the best-known pieces in the flute repertoire and is available in hardcover and paperback through Amazon, Carolyn Nussbaum Music Company, and all major booksellers.
My second new publication is an edition of Joachim Andersen’s long out-of-print Concertstück, Op. 3. It’s an important, virtuoso work that served as the Paris Conservatory’s concours piece in 1895. This is my third collaboration with Zimmermann Music Publishers, and the publication won the National Flute Association’s 2017 Newly Published Music Competition.
