Syrinx Journey Days 321 and 322: “Syrinx” for Bastille Day

In honor of Bastille Day, two renditions of Syrinx. The first outside the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia. as I played, I contemplated The Burghers of Calais. My thoughts also turned today to Gabriel Fauré, who penned his lovely Morceau de concours for flute and piano on Bastille Day in 1898.

Auguste Rodin, The Burghers of Calais

Then, Syrinx with one of the quintessential symbols of France; a baguette!

The flute is a YFL977 by Yamaha; the bread is a St. Germain baguette by Whole Foods.
