Fight, Fright or Delight? A Musical Enigma by 

Featured in THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT OR AS WE MISSED IT! on 26 May 2012
I fell in love with the sound of the flute, when I heard the hauntingly beautiful tones of Sir James Galway, who was playing Debussy’s “Reverie” accompanied by Marisa Robles on harp. Enjoy!

Unfortunately I do not have Sir James’s wonderful talent and – depending on how the practice goes, it could be described as my fight, fright or – occasionally – delight instrument. However, as the world’s greatest flautist describes his own practice as “his daily battle”, perhaps I should not complain!
This is a Trevor James flute. The curved headjoint makes it easier to play for those who suffer from shoulder pain or for people with short arms.

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!

    Lovely image of this beautiful instrument !
    Thank you so much for sharing the accompanying music :)

  • Thank you, Trish. This piece of music was very seminal to my own musical develpment. I did not have a flute at the time and could not afford one, so I bought the piano music (it was originally written for piano) and found that it was much more difficult than I had imagined. However, I was so in love with the piece, that I persevered and was eventually able to play it and by so doing took myself out of the Intermediate into the Higher Grades category. Once over that hurdle, I decided to go the whole hog with the result that I can now teach piano, as well as clarinet and saxophone, but not – unfortunately – the flute, which is the instrument that I was so desperate to learn to play. I can only manage the Lower Grades on it and certainly would never dare play it in public!

    Nice work, and the Debussy is divine. I went to a flute and harp concert a while back where the flautist brought out a huge-diameter version of this instrument. It had a much lower-pitched sound. This was the piece she played on it – incredibly beautiful. -J:

  • Thank you, Jay. It would have been the bass flute.
