Flutist Tessa Brinckman and percussionist Terry Longshore perform intercultural work, in a fearless, ecstatic blend of modern and traditional aesthetics. Inspired by Federico García Lorca’s poem, “Canción de Jinete (1860)”, the duo collaborates with many prominent, innovative artists, creating contemporary music that pushes the flute and percussion repertoire to new heights, and always in the spirit of duende.
Tessa Brinckman & Mitsuki Dazai
Long-time collaborators Tessa Brinckman (flutes) and Mitsuki Dazai (kotos) present evocative, modernist repertoire seldom heard by audiences, throughout the Western United States. Equally at home with scores and improvisation, they reinvigorate contemporary western and non-western pieces, and co-create new works for flute and koto repertoire.
