Welcome to Canada through a flute lens!
Who is the WildFlute?
“Probably the most notable feature of Marsh’s playing is her gorgeous sound—rich, full, even voluptuous. Beyond this she exudes confidence and total control in performances of expressive intensity and sensitive attention to color and the use of vibrato.” - R. Markow
Flute in the Wild is Jaye Marsh’s debut album and is a celebration of the wild and beautiful spaces of Canada. Part one of the project features four fantastic Canadian composers sharing their experience of Canadian wild spaces through music for flute.
The featured composers are: Elizabeth Raum, Richard Mascall, Richard Herriott and Diane Berry. Get to know them on the composers page . The instruments featured with the flute include harp, bassoon, Indigenous storyteller, and piano. Meet the performers here.
