Vitali Chaconne (free pdf) & Fluteloops

Dear Flute lovers,

A few fun and nice things for you!

Firstly, UK flutist Thomas Sargeaunt  has given us for free, two very beautiful pieces.
You'll have read on my blog, about the Bach Chaconne bwv 1004, (pdf) but he has also very kindly offered a second Baroque/Romantic Chaconne for free!

It is the Vitali Chaconne, Piano accompaniement by Charlier and, if you'd like to read about this 1850s Chaconne, there are program notes here, and a good flute performance on youtube.

Flute part (rough transcription):

Piano part that matches:

And a Phd thesis about Vitali Chaconne (dubious attribution, and re-writes through history etc.)
pg. 11-15 (scroll down in pdf): program notes in depth.

Performance on flute of another transcription: youtube.

Enjoy this pdf!! Thankyou Tom! :>D

Fluteloops re-appears:

A decade ago I interviewed James Galway, James Boyk, Nathan Zalman, and other great teachers, and had FIVE interview segments with stage-fright expert, trumpeter/author, Michael Goode (episodes 3-7).
All of these were combined with audio flute recordings and called "Fluteloops".
There are eleven episodes, and they're back up online. (who knows how long they were offline...?)
But they are back!
Shownotes, mp3s, and all episodes 1 to 11:

The sound quality of the old-style skype-phone calls recorded on mini-disc, is really nostalgia inducing, ha ha. So sound-quality apologies in general, and yes, episode 11 is the final one.
