    133. Remote recording and re-writing the Carmen Fantasy - Gina Luciani

    "I can't see Hollywood movie and T.V music sessions ever being a permanently remote operation post Covid."
    In 'Talking Flutes Extra' this week Jean-Paul speaks with L.A based Gina Luciani about the change to remote orchestral recordings for Hollywood TV and films during Covid-19.   Gina also talks about re-arranging the famous 'Carmen Fantasy'  for flute and how she has been true to the original opera and taken inspiration from violin versions for the extra virtuosic flair!   She also talks about her dream that sheet music publishers will make the design of music book front covers as exciting to look at as the old album and CD covers of the past.

    'Who I was and how I identified myself with... was suddenly gone!"
    We have an extra 'Talking Flutes Extra' this week where we catch up with Elsa Nilsson who on a previous podcast recorded last May, was struggling to cope with complete lockdown in NY.  
    We also speak about how she is feeling now and how she has taken her tutor book 'Between the Beats' to a wider audience by making teaching videos available on the Patreon platform to bring the unique concept to a wider flute playing audience.
