Robert Dick & Ursel Schlicht: Flute and Piano Redefined—Again!

Wednesday, October 6, 2021. 8:00 pm

Premiering new music for flute(s) and piano, Robert Dick and Ursel Schlicht continue the creative journey they began in 2004. Their ever-evolving work seeks nothing less than the redefinition of the flute-piano duo. Their music radically expands the sound world and expressive possibilities of the traditional configuration. All of their music involves improvisation, rated uniquely in each work.


Robert Dick – flutes (Glissando Flute®, bass flute, contrabass flute, piccolo)
Ursel Schlicht – piano (on keyboard and inside instrument)


Robert Dick has completely dispensed with preconceptions about what music a flutist plays and what the flute can sound like. He’s created a unique approach to improvisation and composition, and a unique soundworld for his music to inhabit. He’s collaborated with very many improvisors from over the world and has toured and recorded with an extraordinary array of musical personalities.

Ursel Schlicht is an internationally active pianist, composer, scholar and educator. She has recorded as leader or co-leader on Nemu, Cadence, CIMP, Hybrid, Konnex, Muse-Eek and Leo Records. Her compositions include works for large and small ensembles, dance theater, and improvisational scores for silent film classics. www.urselschlicht.com
