Acclaimed Italian flutist and professor at State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart Davide Formisano has returned to Korea as a featured artist at Flute Week Korea 2014. Formisano, who released a new CD Live in Japan: Vol. III, even shared the stage last night at Cosmos Music in Seoul with flute students of Professor Philipp Jundt and Guest Professor Dorothee Binding of the German School of Music Weimar.

The chance to play CPE Bach’s Trio Sonata in D minor as a duet with Formisano was given to 4th-year student Hyeri Song. “Hyeri is very talented,” Formisano remarked after the concert. “She has amazing fingering, good embouchure; she learns [to work around her limitations] very quickly. She was very well prepared.”

“It was such an honor to play with Professor Formisano, whom I already admired,” Song reflected later. “Although I was nervous preparing for the concert, he made it fun. Plus he is so relaxed and charismatic on stage, it really helped me give a more spirited performance.”
