Eric Lamb in Splendor

Eric Lamb is a storyteller. The minute he walks into a room he’s got something to say to all of us, with his body, with words and especially through his flute.

We had the treat of hearing him play a program of new solo works in Splendor.

As interludes to the intense compositional experiences of each piece, a group of four improvisers plus Eric played commentaries on what they had just heard.

The contrasts between composed and improvised chamber music were remarkable, sometimes strange, sometimes just plain fun.
