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. I hope flutists will find it a valuable resource for learning about our favorite pieces.
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 recently won the National Flute Association’s 2017 Newly Published Music Competition.
With spring programs and this season’s pre-concert talks for the Chicago Symphony now over, I’m looking forward to an upcoming performance of Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 at the Peoria Bach Festival on June 5th and a recital at the Praum Instrument Museum in Seoul, South Korea, with pianist Chee-Hyeon Choi, on June 13th.
