What would the world without music be like? I don’t know and I don’t wish to find out. Today’s theme for Black and White Sunday is MUSIC. You know the drill: post your photo for the challenge before next Sunday, link to this post, and leave me a comment bellow. 

Reno Schulz playing Fujara, San Gimignano, 2014

Reno Schulz is a musician stationed in San Gimignano, Italy. He plays several types of flute. The one featured in my photo is Fujara – traditional Slovak flute, and you can hear how it sounds in the enclosed You tube video. I did not record Reno’s sounds, but I managed to capture his portrait while he was holding a private concert for us. And yes, he also plays the music on the attached mp3.

  1. I’m sitting here in our screened-in porch, listening to that wonderful flute music with the sounds of rushing winds. Outside it is raining, with occasional thunder in the distance. It’s dark outside and I can hear various noises in the woods. I guess you could say I’m experiencing the wonders of nature set to this relaxing music. Thank you, Paula, for such a lovely moment! 🤗

    • Thank you for listening to it, Jo. I don’t think he ever thought of it as being uncomfortable, but it is such a demanding work. Happy week ahead, Jo.

  6. Fascinating, Paula. Not the size I expect a flute to be. Great to hear as well as see.

    After much thought, I went with your mention of the end of music. Let’s hope it never happens! -

  13. The Fujara makes a lovely sound, Paula. I had to search for a video of it actually being played. It is interesting to see and to see the carvings/decorations that adorn it. Thanks for the introduction to its beautiful sound.


Come on, say something nice
