New Release: Parisian Inspirations

The Paris Conservatory is steeped in deep musical traditions and is widely considered to be a model for education in Europe, especially for the flute. Paul Taffanel (1844-1908) taught there and is considered a founding father of the modern day French flute school. In this new release, flutist Dionne Jackson (who studied at the Conservatory) explores music by a variety of French composers that she feels “a direct lineage” to, as many of her professors had either known or studied with these composers or their pupils and proteges. She is joined by pianist Marija Stroke.

It’s No Joke!

Sure, April First—April Fool’s Day, happens to be one of my favorite days of the year—you can guess that I’m quite the prankster. However, on this week’s World Music Show (4/1), the tracks we’ll hear will be no joke, in terms of world beat sounds that will make you happy to be alive (or, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch). However, because of stern upbringing in a family full of jokesters, you can expect the usual, albeit poorly executed attempts at some humor.
