Episode 33—Structure and Freedom in Music and in Christ—Mark Christopher Brandt
By Thomas V. Mirus Dec 15, 2018
Last year, Mark broke new ground as a composer with his album-length chamber suite, The Nightingale (see my interview with him). The virtuoso flutist who graced that project, Yana Nikol, returns for this equally remarkable piano-flute improvisational venture. The DVD, Structure and Freedom, is both a master class for those interested in the process and craft of musical improvisation and a work of art in its own right, with a number of fun and unexpected twists and turns. Sunflowers and Roses is the “soundtrack” CD containing all the music from the DVD, plus some outtakes. I highly recommend this for musicians and music students in particular, but anyone who loves beauty will find joy here. It’s all about freedom of soul.
