Amy Porter - Masterclass & livestream recital today

Dear Flute Lovers,
Early-birding it again... I got up at 7 am this morning (it's a three hr. time difference for us here on the West Coast) to watch the enthusiastic and totally helpful Amy Porter teach a masterclass streaming online. I later realized it's in replay at these links all day!
Hugely entertaining!

So yes, so far, you can still watch it in repeat even if you didn't get up early like I did (peep!):

Saturday Oct 11th, 2014 from 10 am 12pm (east coast)
Master Class:

Four students perform: Stamitz, Jolivet, Boehm and Mozart, and receive instruction.Broadcast from Skidmore College. Super interesting to watch another teacher with so many well-tested ideas.

Amy Porter performs CONCERT tonight: Oct. 11th, 2014
This evening  is Amy Porter's recital at this link:


(5pm live stream west coast time, 8 pm east coast North America)

Just watched the entire recital in replay at the above link.
What wonderful showmanship! So spicy the rep. and so nicely filled with contrasts.
Amy Porter opened with the Poulenc Sonata (loved the tempo), by memory, with elan! And even though the audience applauded between movements she was gracious and yet impulsive! It was refreshing!
Bold opener! Great!

Next, Amy came out on to the stage alone, and played an all new interpretation of Bach's Cello Suite No. 5 (two mvmts.). Fabulous! Piazzolla-like flourishes made the opening into an extravaganza of ideas. Loved it.

For the third piece, Christopher Caliendo's latest 11th Sonata.
Totally hilarious!
Got to see!

After a long intermission (skip ahead), there were three contemporary works including Ian Clarke and Daniel Dorff's new work "Three Lakes".
Wonderful contrasts! Well done!

Best, Jen

Thanks for this, Jen. Both the class and recital are still on-line. If you hadn't posted about them, I would have missed them. Best wishes, Susan Maclagan, author: "A Dictionary for the Modern Flutist"
