Waltz into Madness celebrates the creation of exciting new chamber and solo works for flute. I am honored to have been a part of the incarnation of each of these pieces as found here- either in it's original form, or in a new arrangement. From jazz-inspired to classical to contemporary, each piece makes a unique and valuable contribuation to the body of repertoire for flute, piccolo, and alto flute- enjoy! From my first experiences playing jazz piano in high school, I have always loved the genre. When I chose to focus on university flute teaching and orchestral playing, I didn't know that I would ultimately marry an amazing jazz pianist, Mark Flugge, and get to collaborate with him on jazz-inspired projects I would never have even dreamed of! Several of the pieces on this CD are the result of our work together, and we look forward to many more adventures in jazz together. Another passion of mine is chamber music; I am lucky to have opportunities to collaborate not only with Mark in The Flying Colors Duo, but also with clarinetist Gail Lehto Zugger in the Inspirare Duo, as well as the QuintEssential Winds (faculty woodwind quintet at the Capital University Conservatory of Music). Part of performing chamber concerts is the ongoing search for excellent pieces to perform, which naturally leads to the desire to help foster the creation of new quality compositions. The pieces on this CD that I was a part of the commissioning/creative process are Richard Cioffari's 'Breve Duo Latino' and 'Variations on a Theme of Grieg', Dina Lentsner's 'Love Improvisation No. 2', and all of the pieces/arrangements by Mark Flugge. We also took a fabulous piece by Ken Benshoof, 'Timeless', and added an improvised piano chorus of Gershwin's 'Embraceable You' as an introduction; since the piece is based on this jazz standard, it seemed to wake up the audience's ears to pick up the melodic motives throughout the work. My two main goals in making this CD are to get this music out to people who will enjoy listening to these new works, and to inspire other musicians to perform the pieces. Thanks for your help in spreading the word!
