Seatmates and close friends Toronto Symphony Orchestra Second Flutist Leonie Wall and Principal Flutist Kelly Zimba were delighted to play together in person after several weeks of isolation.

To mark the occasion, they played a spirited duet by Georg Philipp Telemann, titled “Spirituoso,” on a sunny afternoon in Leonie’s back garden.

Her producer/director neighbour Andrew Gregg captured the joyful moment, with his colleagues Michael Grippo and Michael Josselyn working the camera and sound.

Musical Moments , produced by the TSO and the Star, features musicians recording themselves live at home, performing pieces no longer than three minutes. The new video will be posted every Thursday at thestar.com/musicalmoments.
