"Folk Contra Punkt" is a project involving 5 flautists from California: Nancy Tyler, Elyce Ostermann,
the flute trio Flute View
the cellist Suellen Primost,
occasional guitar accompaniments by me,
and New Zealand guitarist Bruce Paine
Many of the pieces are my arrangements of folk songs with added countermelodies
but there are also some more original pieces.
By way of example, here is Eos (=Dawn) (played by Elyce, Nancy and me)
The complete Youtube video playlist is available here
The CD, as a digital download, is available at:
Scores and parts for all pieces are available on Musica Neo at the Folk Contra Punkt Catalogue
Separately from the Folk Song CD, because it is so different in mood, there is the composition Better not Cry
which Nancy Tyler, Suellen Primost and I performed during the same project.
It is based on a poem by my father after the funeral of my mother
