“This phenomenal gold flute, Brannen #3040, had been more than a best friend for me for the two hard-working decades of my musical journey.
We had countless precious concerts together around the world, ever since when I was an aspiring flute student in Seoul. I still remember how fascinated I was to have a flute with such sophisticated sound and effortless mechanism that made my musical wishes come to reality!
Since then it was always with me when I moved on to studying under my heroes Julius Baker and Jeffrey Khaner at Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and Juilliard School in New York, and to Cincinnati Symphony under Paavo Järvi, then to Vienna Symphony under Fabio Luisi.
Along this epic journey of pursuing my dream, having to move to different countries with different languages and culture- lots of times it gave me such a "relief" that I was not alone. This very flute, gave me such tremendous amount of hope and strength, assuring me that I was slowly but steadily stepping forward to the musician I wanted to become. We were literally one soul during many chapters of my life which I'm truly grateful for.
Now you see why it took me so long to decide to let it go. I've been terrified that all the warm memories would vanish with it as well. But now, I think it is about time to give this amazing flute another chance to meet another wonderful flutist who will share more unforgettable memories together- for many years to come.
