Mark your calendars! I am playing the ORIGINAL 1936 manuscript of Density 21.5 (very different from the piece you all know!) on a beautiful BURKART PLATINUM FLUTE for this FREE online performance/discussion on November 5 at 7:30pm Eastern Time! This original version of the piece has not been performed since Georges Barrère performed it over 70 years ago!

What a winter, and now spring is in the earth in Nashville! Tulips and daffodils are in bloom, and the sun feels warm.

Returning for a brief 3-month period to the post I held for a decade as the flutist with Eighth Blackbird is a joy. What fun new repertoire for me to perform, and with incredible musicians with whom I started working while we were Oberlin students 27 years ago!

And after each performance, I am always eager to return to the Blair School of Music. The students at Blair are some of the most creative, entrepreneurial, and collegial people in the world, and I have the incredible privilege of working with them!

Live In Studio C: This Piece Of Music Had Her Name On It

It’s an auspicious honor to have a piece of music named after you. Flutist Molly Barth would know, and she’ll also tell you that the idea to include a name comes from the composer, not the title-character.

Set List:

  • CPE Bach: Flute Sonata in A Minor – Adagio, Allegro, Allegro
  • Luca Cori: Quodlibarth – Softly Dancing, Festivito, Ostinato, Eco
  • John Liberatore: Gilded Tree – Black Twig Tips
