Myriam Hidber Dickinson
Myriam Hidber Dickinson has a growing international fan club, which is hooked on a virtuosic flutist who has taken the time and effort to know her pieces from the inside out:
harmony, structure, color, mood, style, ornamentation, agogic, vibrato. . .
She has long since moved through the standard repertoire for flute together with piano, guitar, harp, chamber ensemble, and orchestra; and into Baroque music on period instruments, lesser-known works of the Classic and Romantic (especially from countries outside western Europe), contemporary music, jazz improvisation, African percussion with a major emphasis in the last years on the vast universe of Brazilian music and Choro in particular. To this exceptional versatility must be added: a rare understanding of due diligence, the curiosity of a cat and the courage to go anywhere and dive into just about any music on the planet –– and one understands why her performances are more like “happenings”.
She is known for her work in multi-media: with recitation, with themes, with sculptures in an outdoor setting, with vernissages (improvisations to individual paintings), with conferences, and with mood music in a business conference setting.
