Here’s a link to a really cool video I just came across on youtube of Robert Dick and Greg Pattillo improvising. I thought it would be appropriate since we have Eric Lamb’s clinic on extended technique coming up.
Check it out!

This video from 1949 shows Eugene Ormandy conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra. The flutist playing is William Kincaid, who was my teacher’s teacher.
As I was watching the video, it struck me that Ormandy addressed the orchestra, saying “Gentlemen.” In 1949, there were no women in this orchestra. In fact, no woman held a principal position in a major orchestra until Doriot Anthony Dwyer in 1952. She won principal flute of the Boston Symphony and played with them 1952-1990. And Doriot studied with William Kincaid during WWII!
Here is a link to a great article on Doriot.

While looking for videos with contrabass flute on Youtube I stumbled across this flutist named Tilmann Dehnhard. I especially enjoy the piece for piccolo and alarm clock! Click on the links below to check them out.
