    True Flute Intonation and Sexy Teachers

    True Flute Intonation and Sexy Teachers

    Looking back to Pythagorean Theorem, I explain the origins of musical notes, the difference between Just Intonation and Equal Temperament, and how as a result; to truly play in tune as a flutist. I also tried my hand at my best Jordan Peterson impression, and had a dig at the people of England. All in a day’s work.

    Alto Flutes and Red Socks with Jean-Paul Wright

    Alto Flutes and Red Socks with Jean-Paul Wright

    The flute podcasting world is a rapidly growing one, but there’s one podcast that’s stood the test of time; the reliable stalwart of consistent excellence that is Talking Flutes. I’ve been a fan since the early days, and without it, Inline G wouldn’t exist. So it brings me great pleasure to FINALLY twist the arm of host Jean-Paul Wright into coming on here and giving us the crossover younger Gareth dreamed of. 
    Not only a podcaster, Jean-Paul is also the Managing Director of Trevor James Flutes, having previously worked with Sankyo and Miyazawa, as well as being a trailblazer in the field of musician’s mental health.
    This is a lovely, positive episode talking about validity as musicians, what art means to us and how to look after ourselves. It also has some of the best anecdotes Inline G has ever seen; including the origin story of the red socks, told publicly for the first time ever.

    Gold Flutes and Spezi with Marianna Busslechner

    Gold Flutes and Spezi with Marianna Busslechner

    This week’s Inline G couldn’t have had a more serendipitous timing, as I sat down with the brand new (as in, 2 days brand new!) permanent Principal Flute of the WDR Funkhausorchester; Marianna Busslechner. 
    Formerly at the Staatskapelle Dresden orchestral academy, Marianna chats about her experiences going directly from playing under Christian Thielemann to improvising jazz solos at the WDR. 
    We also chatted about her now professional connections with Die Maus and Tatort, and I finally get to ask a guest their favourite Arctic Monkeys song.
    You can find Marianna on social media @MariannaBusslechner

    Articulation and Kindness with Alice Brie

    Articulation and Kindness with Alice Brie

    Inline G return’s to it’s roots this week; hungover with a world-class flutist, sipping on a Spezi and chatting about all the big issues of the flute world.
    One of my personal best mates, French superstar orchestral musician and soloist Alice Brie was in town, and after a long night of Guinness until 4am, we emerged at 11am for a podcast.
    Alice chats about everything from her experiences as a child prodigy, studying at the CNSM as a teenager, her orchestral debut at l’Opéra de Paris at just 18, right through to French v German tonguing and the role kindness plays to becoming better musicians. 
    This was a delight of an episode. I’m away for a nap and a kebab now x

    Sankyo and Apfelschorle with Julien Beaudiment

    Sankyo and Apfelschorle with Julien Beaudiment

    After I waxed lyrical on Episode 28 of this podcast about Julien Beaudiment’s latest album, “California Dreamin’”, it was an inevitability that I would coax him on here. He found himself in Sunny Köln whilst on tour with The London Symphony Orchestra recently, and thus here we are.
    Julien and I chatted about his time in orchestras in The UK, France and The US, as well as his nervousness before concerts, a shared love of apfelschorle and inevitably; The French Flute School.
    There’s also an incredibly special sneak peak of Julien’s upcoming solo album at the very end of the episode. I can’t stress how lucky you guys are to hear this first; a true Inline G exclusive.
    Merci mes potes x
