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. Captured with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera.
