Today, it’s Midday on Music. A little later we’ll hear from the ‘cellist Amit Peled and his Mt. Vernon Virtuosi ‘Cello Gang. But we begin with the composer and flutist Allison Loggins Hull.
This Sunday afternoon, the celebrated singer-songwriter Toshi Reagon will team-up with the contemporary music ensemble Alarm Will Sound to present the world premiere of a new song cycle by Toshi Reagon and Allison Loggins-Hull. It’s called Love Always. It’s inspired by the African American tradition of elders writing letters to their children.
In addition to composing, Allison Loggins Hull is also an accomplished flute player. She and the flutist and composer Natalie Joachim perform together in a duet called Flutronix. Here’s a sample of their work, from the album City of Breath; The tune is called Flock.
