Hi Alan,

I discussed with Michael and he agreed that any interpretation you would care to do would be awesome to hear.  I know so little about music that I should just listen and enjoy!  🙂

All best,

Max

The instrument has no keys! :-)
But I'm not sure what you mean; what I do is improvisatory; certainly I could send you an .mp3 for you to use (it would take a while), but I doubt it would have anything to do with the tune itself. When Azure and I perform, we sing and play independently of each other - https://vimeo.com/370455654 (from Cyprus).

Best, Alan -

Hi Alan,

These recordings are really great.  They remind me of a Chinese CD I have, which has some pieces that actually remind me of bluegrass a little!  

Would it be possible to commission a recording of "The Beautiful" on that instrument, or would the keys not work?

Best regards,

Max

Pithkiavli sp.

A beautiful Cyprian flute, made for me by a flutemaker in Nicosia
(see receipt). I'm beginning to play it; here are two examples of
the sound. I Favor pith2.mp3. The flute is incredibly light, came
here through DHL along with three catalogs; it took three days to
travel from Limassol, Cyprus, to Providence, RI. Very hard to use
in the lowest octave; on the other hand, easy to swoop in and out
of it. It's wonderful, enjoy! And thanks to Yiannis, Yiannis, and
Helene!
