January 27 – Dialogues by Damase

Born on this day, Jean-Michele Damase (1928-2013) wrote prolifically for the flute. He described his own music as, “basically music that is cheerful and singing, but also enriched with a certain nostalgia and a little depth.” His flute writing also exhibits a thorough knowledge of the instrument and a playful rhythmic sense, making it a joy to play.
