Winter Jasmine for Flute and Piano
- Staff Pick
- Editor's Choice
This is another atmospheric piece from Gary Schocker who knows exactly how to make the flute sing. There is more of the gentle pleasure of winter to be found here with the scent of the jasmine seemingly floating above a fluid accompaniment. There are some stronger moments too but these soon return to the wistfulness of the opening. The ending is beautiful with a long note held above simple piano chords. Lovely!
