“Music is language,” said the legendary French flutist and inspirational teacher, Marcel Moyse, “the flute is one of its mediums of expression, and when I play I try to convey the impression of laughing, of singing, of talking through the medium of my instrument in a manner almost as direct as that expressed by the human voice.” This insight is especially pertinent to this recital of Latin American and Spanish music for flute and piano, which intermingles transcriptions of vocal music with original compositions and transcriptions of instrumental works. Regardless of the music’s origins, whether in vocal or instrumental music, the flute speaks and sings—and at times even dances.

Love Comes In At The Eye

Featuring:
Timothy Jones, baritone
Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio, violin
Carol Cook, viola
Beth Rapier and Anthony Ross, cellos
Stephanie Jutt, flute
Jeffrey Sykes, piano

Music:
Kevin Puts: In At The Eye, Aria
James Scott Balentine, composer: Five Spirituals
Kevin Puts: Air, Rounds for Robin
Ned Rorem, composer: Santa Fe Songs

Love Comes In At The Eye is a recording of songs and instrumental works by Kevin Puts, Ned Rorem, and James Scott Balentine. All Americans, these composers vary in age from 46 (Puts), to 70 (Balentine), to 95 (Rorem), so there a wide spectrum of compositional styles that offers an outstanding listening experience. With works for voice and piano; voice and chamber ensemble; a work for voice and cello; and two works for flute and piano, the recording gives the feel of being part of an audience for a chamber music concert. The performers each have distinguished careers and all participate in the Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society concerts.

“Works of three living US composers are heard in this program…The program is beautifully performed and recorded. Timothy Jones has a lovely, gentle, and agile light lyric voice. The balance of voices and instruments is just right and allows each line in the Rorem songs to be heard clearly. A most welcome discovery. Notes, texts.”
