Searching for new music!

Post by jspach »


I hope you guys can help me a bit. I have a recital coming up, and I'm just searching for pieces that break the stereotypes of a classical flutist. Traditional classical music isn't really what this is about, I'm searching for pop-like harmonies and rhythms. I love the music for example from Rhonda Larson, Ian Clarke and Philippe Barnes, and the kind of songs that you can't listen without nodding your head or tapping your foot. I also just found a piece from Michael Culligan called 'Due Northwest' and I'm loving it!

You wouldn't happen to know any pop'ish or folk-like classical composers or performers, or just composers that write music similar to the ones I listed?

Many thanks (and sorry for my english)! :-)

When the Music is like that Yianni, I think listening is much easier.

I'm not familiar with Yianni. Tell us a bit about this musician.

Hello jspach,

I am actually learning on the Paganini's 24 Caprices, arranged by Patrick Gallois. Okay, that is an etude, but maybe you should listen to it. It's... a hell of a masterpiece. You could pick one of the 24. I think each one is challenging.

I made a playlist for you! My personal favourite is the number 10, by the way :) !

1 2 3

13 14 15

16 17 18
