I felt it was time to send out an update about the Bach Project, my recording endeavour with organist Michael Murray (you can read more about the project, and the incredibly generous individuals who supported it, by clicking here). It’s ended up being a busy season, so it took a bit of time for Michael and me to make all the necessary edits (Chop! Chop! Chop!), and now we’re waiting for our recording technician to return the final versions to us (Stitch! Stitch! Stitch!), so we can move on to mastering, jacket design, and manufacturing of the final physical product. There are a lot of balls in the air at the moment, but we’re confident that the CD will be ready this Spring — which, I realize, is fast approaching! In the meantime, we’d love to give you another taste of what’s to come: here’s a link to our recording of the first movement of Bach’s b minor sonata, which is one of my favourite flute pieces of all time. Enjoy, and expect to hear from us soon!
Our last #Aventa “concert” of the season: socially distanced recording session of #HitchcockEtudes by @nicolelizee
Exploring the piccolo with @kimiakoochakzadeh (and yeah, it’s more of a “sound on” kinda thing) 🎈🎈🎈
Do I like to overdress for recording sessions? Why, yes. Yes I do. It’s the least I can do when recording Nicole Lizée’s epic Tarantino Études for Aventa’s 20/21 online season. (Alright, we may have filmed a bit too.)
