Chamber Music


 Download repertoire "chamber music"



Flute and piano repertoire was naturally dominant all through my school years. In college I added other instruments: a guitarist to share the Ibert “Entr’acte”, an organist for Frank Martin’s Sonata da Chiesa, a cellist for Villa Lobos, etc. And for years I enjoyed being part of our Collegium Baroque Trio, enjoying the music of Bononcini and Caldara with oboe, cello and harpsichord.

In graduate school came duos with a harpist or a percussionist, wind quintets and smaller ensembles, and, most importantly, the ensemble “Roulette”, with composer/performer/improvisers David Means, Robert Fleischer, and Dan Senn, (composers/inventors!), Jim Staley and Bob Gale (trombones), John Fonville and myself (flutes).

When I came to Cologne in 1980 I co-formed groups with various wind and/or string players, playing repertoire from Bach to Mozart to Jonathan Harvey to Stockhausen, and even had a folk/rock group (called “Dreirad”, meaning “tricycle”) that included a bouzouki.

Since then I have continued to have the privilege of enjoying intense and exhilarating chamber music experiences with colleagues in many countries, performing music of many epochs.
