    "Flute Exercise #23"

    Herewith is my "Flute Exercise #23", featuring the GPO Solo Flute V and the GPO Steinway Piano.

    A solo instrument's accompaniment doesn't have to be staid and lifeless.

    A fine exercise, Larry. (I feel more muscular, already -- in a flutey sort of way, of course.)

    Were it me, I think perhaps I'd pull back on the flute a little and bring the piano up a bit in the mix -- it's strong writing for the piano, rather than the usual subsidiary role in such an exercise, and its interactions with the flute would be more evident.

    But, it's Flute Exercise not Piano Exercise, even though the piano does play a stronger than usual role.

    Nevertheless, thanks for the suggestion. I value your opinion highly.

    Let me clarify a little, Larry. My inference is not to make the piano the star of the show, so to speak. When I say "a little" and a "bit" I really do mean minor tweaking.

    I know when I'm mixing something like this, I always have to fight the temptation to put the accompaniment too far down in the mix; but, usually, a little more in the way of equality doesn't diminish the presence of the solo instrument, and produces a fuller, more realistic sound.
