Q&A with Joséphine Olech on Principal Chairs

Fabulous interview (free video!) and well worth watching! 

Principal flute of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, and 2019 winner of the Carl Nielsen International Competition, Joséphine answers questions about her practice routine (minute: 41:00), preparation for competition, orchestral situation in Rotterdam, studying at the Paris Conservatoire, warmups, articulation, and myriad other topics. See the whole Q&A video here.  (Note: you don't need to belong to Facebook to view them)

This excellent free video series from Principal Chairs has also added more masterclasses with Michael Cox. Find all videos here  and enjoy!

The Sancan Sonatine performance video mentioned at the start of the Q&A is below.
Enjoy this refreshing young flutist!
Best, Jen
