Listening to music played on a period instrument is like hearing someone's stories told in their own words and in their own voice. But it is not the authenticity of historical instruments that fascinates me most, but rather the amiable intimacy. Intimacy between the composer and his music, then his music and me. Intimacy between me and those who once lived before me, and who will live again through my music-making. Intimacy between the past, present, and future; between reality and the infinite possible worlds, where we are all connected with each other, and where we will find solace.
A story of the conical flute told in her voice.
What would she say?
How would she sound?
Where would she take us?
