Schubert, variations on Trockne Blumen, Vincent Lucas, flute.

I so want to get my flute-playing going again. I was working through this piece at one time. I remember Mary the Flute saying "I think you'll find it sits beneath the fingers quite nicely." Yeah.

I have noticed that nobody seems to do all the repeats. It would be SO LONG with all the repeats. Still. This is just part 1. It's almost 20 minutes without all the repeats !

I don't normally like players who move too much, but I like this guy's playing a lot. When the music is martial he stands to attention. Sometimes he takes a big step sideways. Sometimes he goes over and plays to the pianist. It's charming !
