Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata Performed by Michele McGovern
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern was arranged by Michele McGovern and Melody Lord during the 12 years that they worked together prior to Ms. Lord's untimely death. In addition to Moonlight Sonata, the pair also did 6 different arrangements of the famous opera "Carmen," which was designed for the flute and piano. The culmination of their collaboration was an engagement at New York City's Carnegie Hall in the Weil recital hall, where the two artists performed all 6 arrangements of Carmen. Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern was turned into a very successful YouTube video as homage to her late friend and associate. Ms. Lord's memory (as well as the mentorship she provided Michele) live on every time Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern is heard by audiences.
Michele has gone on to write and arrange a variety of songs, including such originals as Little Flirt, Timelessness, and Winter's Beauty to name just a few. Even though Ms. McGovern has moved into more of a classical crossover genre, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern continues to be heard and appreciated by audiences everywhere.
The tribute video starring Michele that she dedicated to the memory of Ms. Lord won several awards and spurred a new direction in her career. Audiences began to see a completely different side of Michele's talents beyond Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern. The release of Pavane on YouTube and Vimeo shortly after Moonlight was a signal to the new more modern direction that Ms. McGovern was taking with her music. The crossover classical and New Age style would prove to be the perfect fit for Micheleâ€™s skills as a composer.
Unlike the more classic Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern, Pavane offers a definite rock influence. Her video showcases a Steam Punk feel that sets the tone for this revamp of this famous classical opus. In this video the atmosphere is completely different from the vibe found in Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern, and it was the beginning of a totally different sound for the extraordinary flutist.
Ms. McGovern went on to compose jazz infused pieces, such as Little Flirt and New Age inspired numbers like Falling Leaves. Although Michele is well-known for her extraordinary performances with world-renowned orchestras, such as Mozart's D Major Concerto, Mozart's Andante, Vivaldi's Il Gardellino Concerto, Vivaldi's La Notte Concerto, Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 for two flutes and violin, Lukas Foss' "For Toru," and a recording with Saint Petersburg Camerata in St. Petersburg, Russia, she has proven that she has the talent required to switch from the traditional classical flutist to incorporate the modern flair that is her new path.
It is obvious that Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata performed by Michele McGovern is an amazing testament to her abilities; however, we are all looking forward to her new adventures. In fact, her latest forays include live performances in Boston on a local television program and upcoming concerts in Chicago. You can find more information and the latest news on this website.
