177 - It's the exploration which makes playing music so powerful!! - Clare Southworth

Understand the composers narrative and your performance will come alive!

In this 'look-back' podcast, Clare takes a look at the beautiful 'Sonate en Concert' by the prolific composer Jean-Michel Damase and two movements, the 'Rondeau' and the 'Aria' from the beautiful and haunting flute piece Suite Antique by John Rutter

Of the ‘Sonate en Concert’ Clare says in her Podcast #88 recorded in 2019, "in my opinion, Damase doesn't get the credit amongst flute payers that he deserves!'

Composed in 1979, 'Suite Antique' is a concertante work by John Rutter and is written for harpsichord, flute and string orchestra. Rutter composed the piece, in six movements, for a concert at which Bach's fifth Brandenburg concerto was to be performed, and so decided to write the piece for the same ensemble. In this podcast from 2019 (#68) Clare looks at two movements in particular, the 'Rondeau' and the 'Aria'
