New Music for Flutes


Listen to new music for flute on this New Sounds program, ranging from Japanese shakuhachi to Native American flute, along with the Indian Bansuri flute and perhaps even the ocarina.   There’s also bass flutes, perhaps even some beatbox flute, and music by James Newton, where he has overdubbed flute parts which wind up sounding like a backing orchestra. Plus, music by Alan Hovhaness for flute and harp.
