I am glad to share with you some more excerpts of my latest CD “Flute Spirit”. Here you have Jonathan G. Bayley’s “Two pieces” for alto flute: From Within and Music for Pan.
From the late 1970s and early 1980s Bayley studied at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Banff, Alberta, Canada) and it was the jazz flutist Paul Horn who introduced him to the alto flute. The first of the pieces seeks an inner sound, integrated with the breathing, in a meditating mood. The second one, dedicated to Jeanne Baxtresser shows a dance character in its form and articulation, while alluding to the mythological legend of Pan and Syrinx, so closely linked to the flute repertoire.
Please sit back and enjoy!
