Greetings Kari,

I like Midnight Sun for flute. It is very lite and sonically refreshing. Thanks for sharing.

Very best,

Larry Elliott

Hi Kari, I'm enjoying listening to your music! I like the fact that it goes somewhere, tells a story, takes you on a journey. Sibelius' music is like that. He is one of my favorite composers. If I ever go to Europe, one of my goals is to visit his house and memorial. Also, Debussy's. Then maybe Mozart. Must be night where you are, with the days growing short as they do this time of year...
