FLûth - “The Voyage Out (after Virginia Woolf)” @ Festival Embarque, France

FLûth (Tessa Brinckman, flutes and Caroline Delume, guitars) perform a poetic concert of contemporary works, “The Voyage Out (after Virginia Woolf)”, at Festival Embarque, just outside Paris.  They will play Norio Fukushi’s “Dawn Brightens the Day of Mortals Robed in Purple”, Tōru Takemitsu’s “Towards the Sea”, a new version of Bun-Ching Lam’s – “Three Haikei (after Basho)” , Heitor Villa Lobos “Distribution des Fleurs”, and a world premiere of Impulsion composer Tessa Brinckman of “Galanthea”.  More details about Festival Embarque itself are forthcoming!

Tessa Brinckman and Caroline Delume first met to work together in Paris, 2018. Within weeks they had presented concerts, as FLûth, for flute, alto and bass flutes, baroque flute, guitar and theorbo, allowing for the truly vast, global sounds that exist in contemporary music. At ease with both music scores and improvisation, both musicians combine their experience of traditional and innovative sounds on ancient and modern instruments. They will be recording Norio Fukushi’s “Dawn Brightens the Day of Mortals Robed in Purple” for an upcoming album (2021).
