This could possibly be one of my all-time favorite flute performances. I may have posted this before. I like it so much that I don’t really care. It’s good. If you haven’t seen it, this is your lucky day! (or unlucky day, if you don’t care for the pig) It is definitely a piggy flute performance.
I grew up with Sesame Street. It is a children’s television show based in New York City which addresses learning and every day skills that children need. One of the characters is Miss Piggy. She is one of Jim Henderson’s Muppets. She is one of the stars in this video.
If you haven’t seen this flute performance, this is your lucky day!
The other star is one of my all-time favorite flute players. His name is Jean-Pierre Rampal.
Wikipedia Says: “Jean-Pierre Louis Rampal (7 January 1922 – 20 May 2000) was a French flautist. He has been personally “credited with returning to the flute the popularity as a solo classical instrument it had not held since the 18th century.”
Hum. I just realized that he died in the year 2000. I remember it like it was just last year. How time flies!
Anyway, in this video he performs a beautiful piece you will really enjoy. That is, if you can get around the fact that Miss Piggy is comically adding to the performance.
What’s your favorite flute performance?
