I just learned “What does T.S. Eliot know about you?”
I had a good rehearsal with the flute player. I suggested that she not push her double-tongueing at one point and just play it the normal speed that she is able to. She tried it and played the passage in Poulenc very clearly. I could see that she was surprised that easing off like that could produce such a result. She said to me that she wished her teacher had told her that earlier.
