This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Jupiter (G. T. Holst), by Mosurin



This is a very unusual piece of the repertoire that sensei Mosurin recorded in a video: Jupiter, from The Planets, by Gustav Theodore Holst. Gustav Holst (1874-1934) was an English composer who get the fame with The Planets. This work is composed of seven movements, one for each planet and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst. Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity dates of 1914.

As usual, sensei Mosurin's nose flute is precise, clear as cristal, and the master creates a crescendo in power and sharpness (listen at 1'57"!!), to reach a real summit of pure playing. Really beautiful.

  3. Very well played, love the intro that sounds as if it were a traditional Asian song performed on the bamboo flute.
