Yuki Isami is originally from Japan but is now based in Montreal. She plays different Japanese flutes as well as the Western flute.
I first saw her perform at a concert during Festival Accès Asie in May 2016. She performed pieces composed by Takemitsu Toru. While some of his unorthodox compositions were not to my liking, I thought she performed them very well. Since summer is still around, let’s enjoy this medley of summer songs performed by Isami on flute with a pianist.
And here is one of the Toru pieces she performed.
