Just released!: Musikverlag Zimmermann has published a new edition of Joachim Andersen’s Quatre Morceaux, Op. 62, for which I served as editor. It’s the fifth edition in Zimmermann’s “Kyle Dzapo Series.” This was Andersen’s final collection of salon pieces and contains four lyrical compositions that show his ability to create charming, melodic works in contrast to his endlessly challenging etudes. One, two, or all four pieces add a lovely Romantic touch to any recital, and the introduction provides helpful, interesting contextual information.
This video offers a glimpse into one of my latest projects. It 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. Then, with Japanese subtitles, it was presented in Fukuoka and, with French subtitles, at the 2022 French Flute Festival in Aix-en-Provence last October.
