In Studio A with Eloise Hartings

Flutist Eloise Hartings

No, Eloise Hartings wasn't named after the iconic book character. (She gets asked that a lot - she's actually named for three different members of her family.)

With pianist Soojin Kang, this Interlochen Arts Academy senior performed the Concertino by Cécile Chaminade in IPR's Studio A.

Eloise said she enjoys this piece because it tells such a clear story about heartbreak, love and catharsis.

It can be a little daunting to play the Concertino because so many legendary flute players have performed and recorded it, but Eloise sees it as an opportunity.

"I can draw on what other musicians have already done and make it my own," she explained.

Eloise is a student of Nancy Stagnitta at Interlochen Arts Academy.

Stefan Wiebe engineered this edition of Studio A.
