About this product
- DescriptionIn Cuban Flute Style: Interpretation and Improvisation, Sue Miller-music historian, charanga flute player, and former student of Richard Egues-examines the early-twentieth-century decorative style of flute playing in the Cuban danzon and its links with the later soloistic style of the 1950s as exemplified by Fajardo and Egues. Transcriptions and analyses of recorded performances demonstrate the characteristic elements of the style as well as the styles of individual players. A combination of musicological analysis and ethmusicological fieldwork reveals the polyrhythmic and melodic aspects of the Cuban flute style, with commentary from flutists Richard Egues, Joaquin Oliveros, Polo Tamayo, Eddy Zervigon, and other rewned players.
