Music video series connects scholarship with performance

Caterpillar Professor of Music Kyle Dzapo D.M. has created a four-part video to tell the story of the intriguing nineteenth-century flutist, composer and conductor Joachim Andersen. An innovative approach to connecting musical scholarship and performance, the project features live performances of Andersen’s compositions for flute and piano. It was presented at the 2019 National Flute Association convention in Salt Lake City and at the Japan Flute Association convention in Fukuoka. Upcoming presentations include the French Flute Festival in Paris (October 2021) and the German Flute Festival in Freiberg (March 2022).
