My Classical Side

I was digging a storage box last weekend when I suddenly found an old flute note. It then transported me to my teenage days; the time when I use to play a bamboo flute.

It started when I heard a childhood friend playing flute. She was really good. If she wasn’t, I bet she’ll never be an orchestra member who plays flute and occasionally plays slide whistle.

I wasn’t a fan of Mozart’s Magic Flute at that time, I don’t even heard it either, but I remember being amazed at the serenity of classical sound it makes. It did stir up my interest and eventually learned a few pieces as an amateur player. I then become a big fan of classical orchestra music particularly Globus and Immediate Music. I would be very happy to see them perform live.
