The first episode of Settling the Score all about the flute and piccolo! We talk to esteemed UT graduate flautist Brendan Ryan while Joelle complains about how hard it is to play an instrument without resistance and attempts to make a beautiful flute tone (hint: breathe).
Settling the Score, the feature series of Nuts and Bolts Music’s 2013-2014 season, is a “techniques” class for radio. Each episode is an informal conversation about the performance practice, history, and famous excerpts of one instrument, moving by score order. The final episode (TBA) will be accompanied by a live concert/benefit where CDs of the collected podcasts of the series will be distributed.
Original air date: Monday, September 16
