Musikverlag Zimmermann has just released a new edition of Joachim Andersen’s Schwedische Polska-Lieder, Op. 50, for which I served as editor. This collection of charming pieces demonstrates Andersen’s ingenuity and skill in adapting Isidor Dannström’s original vocal works. The six pieces are delightful, not too difficult, and I’m happy that they’re back in print with corrections to the first edition.
This video offers a glimpse of my latest project. The full event includes a four-part video that tells the story of Joachim Andersen’s life and career as flutist, composer, and conductor. Live performances of his compositions are presented between segments of the video. The project was first presented at the 2019 National Flute Association convention in Salt Lake City and, with Japanese subtitles, at the Japan Flute Association convention in Fukuoka. Upcoming presentations include the French Flute Festival in Paris (October 2021) and the German Flute Festival in Freiburg (March 2022).
