Scriabin, Arranged for Flute and Piano

Pianist Steven Aldredge's arrangements of Scriabin piano works for flute and piano feature him alongside flutist Christopher Chaffee in these recent YouTube clips. A CD release is projected for the next few months, as well as a published edition of seven flute/piano arrangements(!). Both Chris and Steven are on faculty at Wright State University.

(Interesting factlet: Back in the day, Chris and I were often mistook for each other because of our extreme height, identical first names, and near-identical hairstyles. One year at the Bowdoin Festival, we played the Poulenc flute/piano sonata - someone came up to me afterwards and complimented me on some excellent flute playing.)

    how stupid. if you can't play the piano version, you don't have to do it for 2 or more instruments.
