Yung Flute 2.3 Earth Model & Upcoming Mujuan Retreat

I recently purchased a 2.3 Earth model from Perry and absolutely love it.  It’s so earthy, raw and creates such a beautifully haunting tone.  It’s quite amazing the difference from the 1.8 I have from Monty.  I have a bit harder time hitting the upper register notes, but otsu is mesmerizing.  During my practices this week I’ve been bouncing back and forth between the two flutes, depending on the piece.  I’ve only found the challenge in that the finger holes being so much further apart on the 2.3 that I get thrown off a bit at how close they are on the 1.8.

 

This week Jon and I finished Sashi and discussed a bit about next weekend’s intensive retreat with Kurahashi Sensei.  We will do an ensemble piece as well as a honkyoku.  I have two private lessons with Kurahashi Sensei and plan on going over material I’ve learned with Jon.  Most probably Daiwagaku, Banshiki and maybe Sashi.  Only knowing seven songs so far, I may run out of material.  But either way, it’ll be nice just to have some time to practice with Sensei.

Gassho,

  1. I’m so happy that the 2.3 is speaking to you.
