Els músics hem de cuidar el cos i la ment i l’equilibri entre els dos. Aquí us explico una mica com em cuido i em deixo cuidar

Conrad Setó, “Estudi 2020”, for solo flute

This gem was written for me in the first hours of the year 2021. I can only be grateful to my dear friend and composer Conrad Setó. It is not a study in the academic meaning of the word but more a caprice or a pictorical “équise” in music. Be this year peaceful and fulfilling for all of us.

New youtube playlist: Flute studies

Due to lockdown restrictions and online teaching, I have been recording several educational videos including flute studies during the last weeks. Today I uploaded some of my favourite studies to my youtube channel in a new playlist, with the hope it is useful both for students and teachers. Enjoy!

F. Poulenc, Sonata for flute and piano

Here there is another “vintage” recording from the concert in San Sebastián in 2000 with fabulous pianist Alan Branch. This concert was broadcasted on the Euskadi radio. Hope you enjoy it!

A. Honegger, Romance, for flute and piano

Live recording from 29/04/2000

This is a nice memory from 20 years ago. I apologise about the sound quality: this concert was broadcasted on the radio and the original recording was on a casette which passed on to a CD and later to mp3 file. Hope even thus you enjoy this lovely piece, “Romance”, by Arthur Honegger, for flute and piano.
